The Mind of Rome

Excerpt

This book is a companion to R. W. Livingstone Pageant of Greece, and is intended primarily for those who know no Latin, but wish to form some idea of the great Latin writers and what they wrote. Its plan is in the main the same: the various departments of Latin literature have been dealt with separately, and each section is designed to show the historical development of its particular branch. As several writers have contributed to the book there are inevitably certain minor differences in style and treatment, but we have done our best by cross-references and other means to link the whole book together and to make it fundamentally uniform.

We have for the most part chosen our translations from standard versions already published, but where there is no translator's name appended it is to be assumed that the rendering is by the writer of the section. We wish to make grateful acknowledgement for leave to use the following copyright translations:

Wight Duff Literary History of Rome (Fisher Unwin); Apuleius Adlington (Loeb Classical Library) and Pater (Macmillan & Co.); Aulus Gellius, Mason (Journal of Education); Calpurnius, E. J. L.
