Sinopsis de THE EARLY HISTORY OF ROME (BOOKS I-V)

An epic endeavor by a man genuinely enamored of his native Rome, Livy&rsquo,s &ldquo,History of Rome&rdquo, was originally written in 142 books spanning the entire history of the Roman people up to Livy&rsquo,s day in the time of Augustus in the first century BC. Of this monumental history, which took most of the Livy&rsquo,s life to complete, only 45 books still survive today. Livy begins with Aeneas&rsquo, landing in Italy and the myth of the founding of Rome by Romulus. In later books Livy thoroughly covers the numerous wars and rulers of Rome. Though the work is a bit biased, its countless references to other sources are a testament of Livy&rsquo,s attempt to create an accurate, understandable history of the Roman Kingdom and later the Republic. Simultaneously a glorification of Rome and a passionate warning to future Romans, &ldquo,Ab Urbe Condita&rdquo, reflects the magnificence and ignominy, the opinions and interests, and the myths and political realities of one of history&rsquo,s most remarkable civilizations. This edition, which is printed on a premium acid-free paper and follows the translation of D. Spillan, collects the first five books of Livy&rsquo,s history beginning with the landing of Aeneas and concluding with the conquest of the Gauls._,
