Product Description

This is the OCR-endorsed publication from Bloomsbury for the Latin A-Level (Group 2) prescription of Livy's History of Rome, Book I, giving full Latin text, commentary and vocabulary for chapters 53-54, 56 (haec agenti ...)-60, with a detailed introduction that also covers the prescribed text to be read in English. Livy is one of the great Roman historians. His History of Rome, written in the late-1st century BCE, covered more than 700 years from the foundation of the city to his own era. In this selection he provides an account of the reign of the last King of Rome, Tarquinius Superbus, the rape of Lucretia by the King's son, and the overthrow of the monarchy and establishment of Republican government by Brutus. These dramatic events must be read in the context of Livy's perspective as an author writing at the very beginning of the Imperial period. Resources are available on the Companion Website.
