Publikace: THE ANNALS: The Reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - TACITUS, C.. A lively new translation of ancient historian Tacitus' account of

the reigns of three of Rome's most memorable emperors, Tiberius,

Claudius, and Nero, accompanied by a wide-ranging and informative

introduction and notes. Tacitus' gripping account of the bloody

reigns of Tiberius and Nero includes plotting, murder, poisoning,

suicide, uprisings, death and destruction. In particular it

contains the suppression of the revolt led by Boudicca in Britain,

the great fire of Rome under Nero, and persecution of the

Christians. The translation aims at readability without sacrificing

accuracy and is based on the recent Latin Heubner text, with

variations noted in an appendix. The introduction and notes,

designed with the non-specialist reader in mind, are the work of a

Roman historian who has published widely on the early Roman

emperors. The edition includes maps, a glossary of Roman terms, a

glossary of place names, and a full index of names and places. 'He

was atrocious in his brutality, but his lechery was kept hidden...

In the end, he erupted into an orgy of crime and ignominy alike'

Such is Tacitus' obituary of Tiberius, and he is no less caustic in

his opinion of the weak and cuckolded Claudius and the 'artist'

Nero. The Annals is a gripping account of the Roman emperors who

followed Augustus, the founder of the imperial system, and of the

murders, sycophancy, plotting, and oppression that marked this

period in Rome. Tacitus provides the earliest and most detailed

account of Boudicca's rebellion in Britain, and his history also

relates the great fire of Rome in the reign of Nero, and the

persecution of the Christians that followed. He deplores the

depravity of the emperors, whose behaviour he sees as proof of the

corrupting force of absolute power. J. C. Yardley's translation is

vivid and accurate, and Anthony A. Barrett's introduction and notes

provide invaluable historical and cultural context. ABOUT THE

SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made

available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

further study, and much more. Readership: Readers of ancient

history, anyone interested in ancient Rome and the Emperors,

translation. Publikace: THE ANNALS: The Reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - TACITUS, C.. antická literatura v anglickém překladu
