Podrobný popis:

Publikace: CATILINE´S CONSPIRACY, THE JUGURTHINE WAR, HISTORIES (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - SALLUST. The Roman historian Sallust's accounts of Catiline's conspiracy,

the Jugurthine War, and his fragmentary Histories together chart

the decline of the late republic, and his influence extended

throughout antiquity. William W. Batstone's new translation

captures the energy and severity of Sallust's Latin style in an

accessible English idiom. A full introduction sets Sallust and his

works in their turbulent historical context, and considers their

achievements as both history and literature. Shorter, individual

introductions and chronologies to each of the three works chart the

sequence of events. Comprehensive notes, glossary, and index.

Up-to-date bibliography and three maps covering the ancient

Mediterranean, Italy, and Africa. 'the glory of wealth and physical

beauty is fluid and fragile; but virtue is held brilliant and

eternal' The Roman historian Sallust lived through troubled times.

He deplored the moral and political decline of the Republic, and in

his two monographs he set out to exemplify the reasons for the

years of civil strife. Catiline's Conspiracy is an account of the

rebellion against the state led by the disaffected Catiline. For

Sallust it was 'especially memorable because of the unprecedented

nature of the crime and the danger it caused'. Rome's fight against

the king of Numidia in The Jugurthine War is a graphic depiction of

power struggles in Rome and brutal battles in Africa that

eventually resulted in the capture of Jugurtha. Sallust's abrupt

and distinctive style is the perfect vehicle for his moral urgency,

bitter condemnation, and satirical cynicism. This new translation,

which also includes Sallust's fragmentary Histories, captures his

effects in an accessible English idiom, and provides a

comprehensive introduction to his work as history and literature.
