The Classical Roman Reader signals a new era in the study of the literature and thought of ancient Rome. From the Greek and Italian origins of Rome to the decline and fall of the empire, the firsthand accounts -- the speeches, histories, plays, philosophic texts, poetry, and more -- present ancient Rome in all of its glorious variety. Here you'll find everything under the Roman sun, from the epic poetry of Virgil to the broad comedy of Plautus; from the recipes of Apicius to Cato's treatise on farm management. Covering such topics as politics, architecture, cooking, religion, the role of women, science, rhetoric, warfare, and law, among others, The Classical Roman Reader will appeal to general readers wanting a ready reference to major Roman figures and ideas and students looking for the first time at the glory of Roman civilization.
