    PDF Historiae Kindle #192; #8608; gamegeek denterde historiae pdf, Historiae ePUBFor all the detail Tacitus goes in to this is a fast paced introduction to a turbulent year in Roman history Emperor Nero has recently committed suicide and has been replaced by the elderly Galba who in short order is murdered by Otho who seizes the imperial crown only to commit suicide himself when Vitellius declares himself Emperor and marches on Rome defeating Otho's army with an army drawn from the Rhineland frontier but Vitellius doesn't get to enjoy being Emperor for long before he is executed by supporters of Vespasian who has left the siege of Jerusalem for his son to complete while he launches his claim for the Imperial throne Pause for breath This has taken place over the years 68 to 70ADTacitus' account of the course of

    PDF Historiae Kindle #192; #8608; gamegeek denterde historiae pdf, Historiae ePUBA meaningless rating that just means I didn't really enjoy reading this but I'm glad I did There's just too much movement of arms and men in the story Tacitus tells to really grab me too many generals moving and shaking When he focuses away from generals and onto people I'm all in The one liners of course are fabulous The introduction to the World's Classics edition is well worth reading too which is something you can't normally say for these introductions This one makes an interesting argument about what's happening in Tacitus' writings without banging on about current obsessions except to make the reasonable point that Tacitus isn't anti semitic even though he's no fan of the Jews in Palestine at this time The argument is basically that Tacitus is mo

    PDF Historiae Kindle #192; #8608; gamegeek denterde historiae pdf, Historiae ePUB Well there goes the last major work of Tacitus Over the last month and a bit its been a fun experience going through the Annals and the Histories The histories is an extremely chaotic book both in content and narration Tacitus constantly switches back and forth between events Sometimes this change can be quite unforgiving and without the footnotes I would have probably struggled to notice the change especially for the discussion of Vitellius time in Rome Overall I would divide this book into two parts both in terms of themes and my enjoyment The first portion of the book spa

    PDF Historiae Kindle #192; #8608; gamegeek denterde historiae pdf, Historiae ePUB3 Stars Good bookLots of information in a pretty small book The amount of information was slightly overwhelming but overall fascinating Tacitus takes us back to aftermath of the fall of Nero He gives us a detailed history of Galba Otho Vitellius and Vespasian father of the Flavian Dynasty The years covered are 68 CE to 70 CE There are a lot of names in this book that are unknown to most though nonetheless fascinating The writing isn't hard to understand just jam packed with information I wouldn't necessarily say I enjoyed this one like I'm glad I read it Would I recommend it? If you really like ancient historyAncient Romeancient writers then yes If not no

    PDF Historiae Kindle #192; #8608; gamegeek denterde historiae pdf, Historiae ePUBExcellent background for reading Lindsay Davis’s mystery series about a Roman detective—Tacitus is relating the story of the turbulence after Nero’s death when there was no clear line of succession to the position of emperor and military discipline was beginning its long years of decline It’s the year of four emperors ending with Vespasian The events in Gaul and Germany described by Tacitus are woven into Davis’s plots But of course it’s good background in general as well Who should I support? Would I be better off selling him out or pretending to be loyal while secretly negotiating just in case? How depraved can someone be? How much loot can I carry off? All good but of course historical questions
