Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the volume is both one among Tony Woodman's great services to Tacitean studies and a tribute to them." --BMCR

Book Description

Tacitus is universally recognised as ancient Rome's greatest writer of history. In this clear and accessible Companion, experts analyse each of Tacitus' works, discuss his methods and style, assess his views of history and freedom, and trace his influence from the Renaissance through to the twentieth century.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This new Cambridge Companion not only updates Tacitean scholarship, but adds a freshness and vitality to it as well. So far, I have been inspired by Tony Woodman's Introduction and his call for the continuation not only of research on Tacitus, but also appreciation of this great writer. Anthony Birley's chapter situates the Agricola well in current scholarship, while Rhiannon Ash's chapter on the Histories is truly an excellent and fresh approach which suits the first time reader as well as the seasoned veteran of Tacitus' Histories. All in all, a worthy addition to the Cambridge series and to Tacitus scholarship in general by leading scholars in the field.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book! The editor has succeeded in harvesting the latest in scholarship on Tacitus, while encouraging work that is provocative, open-minded, and accessible to non-specialists. It is a book to stimulate all of us who are fascinated by Tacitus, and who endeavor, with perhaps more enjoyment than success, to tackle his works in Latin. There is not a dull paper in the book, and collectively they hang together very well. S.P. Oakley's piece on Tacitus' style and language is a tour de force; the pieces on Gibbon and Syme are a welcome bonus. Bravo!
