The Legacy of Rome [PDF]

by Richard Jenkyns
The achievements of the Roman world have profoundly affected European and world civilization. The original Legacy of Rome, edited by Cyril Bailey, was published in 1923 and has been widely read. Nearly seventy years on, this new edition, illustrated with 24 pages of plates, offers a fresh assessment of the influence of ancient Rome on the literature, art, culture, thought, and governance of later times. There are fourteen contributors from a variety of disciplines, each bringing his individual knowledge and experience to the subjects discussed. Classical scholars consider the influence of Virgil, Horace, Ovid, pastoral, satire, and rhetoric. Historians assess Rome's impact through the ages, and textual transmission. Art, architecture, law, drama, and language are also individually discussed. The varied approach and content of this new appraisal witness to the richness of the civilization which forms a large part of our heritage today.
