Gaius Cornelius Tacitus
"Long, I pray, may foreign nations persist, if not in loving us, at least in hating one another; for destiny is driving our empire upon its appointed path, and fortune can bestow upon us no better gift than discord among our foes."
|Complete Works of Tacitus|
Translated by Alfred John Church and William Jackson Brodribb, Edited, with an Introduction, Moses Hadas
(Tacitus, J. B. Rives)
(Clarendon Ancient History Series)
The Germania of Tacitus is the most extensive account of the ancient Germans written during the Roman period. This new translation, introduction, and commentary provides an up-to-date guide to the relevant literary and archaeological evidence, and discusses the methodological issues involved
in understanding this important historical source.
|The Annals of Tacitus|
(Tacitus, F. R. D. Goodyear (Editor))
(Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries)
This book is the second volume of one of Professor Goodyear's greatest works of Latin literature and one of the most important sources for the history of the Roman Empire. His edition is accompanied by a major commentary which deals fully with textual, linguistic, literary, and historical matters. Every question is examined afresh. The discussion ranges widely, but not loosely. It is the editor's aim to explain Tacitus as a whole, not just particular features of his writing. The task he has undertaken is very large for there is a vast amount which needs explanation in the subject-matter and in its presentation. The results should benefit students of Latin literature and Roman history equally.
