Rome by Livy I ve decided to track and read through the Loeb while listening to Audible but that is going to reuire me to buy another 8 volumes The good from that is well eight little red books The bad Well these little books retail for 26 although you can usually find either really good used copies or new copies for 12 18 So I m looking at almost 200 to finish purchasing these books and I ve already spent about 60 So why read the Loeb versionuod est in Latinam verso Because Latin is on the leftEt lingua mea sedenti in recto And English sits on the right Now those who know me KNOW I don t read or speak Latin So why is having Livy in Latin and English that important Because some day I DO want to read Latin Because it pleases me Because if I read on the recto side a phrase that strikes my fancy likeTheir name was irksome and a menace to liberty Livy Book II ii 4I can go almost straight across and discover what that was in LatinNon placere nomen periculosum libertati esseIt delights

books I m not sure how fast I ll get through all of them I think for my family s financial stability I ll drip and drab these out through out the year I kill me Book 3 The Patricians at Bay Book 4 War and PoliticsMy second of fourteen Livy s History of Rome covers books 3 and 4 467 404BC It largely deals with early growing pains in Rome as its second census shows its population swollen beyond 100000 The tensions between the plebs represented politically by the tribunes and the patricians represented politically by the senate My favorite parts of Book 3 dealt with Lucius uintus Cincinnatus the machinations of the decemvirs and Appius Claudius claiming Verginius daughter Verginia as a slaveMy favorite part of Book 4 was the debate over a law about marriage between patricians and plebeians and the right for plebeians to be consuls Canuleius speech from this section was brilliant and could easily have been used 2000 years later when debating a woman s right to vote etc Here are some of Livy s best lines When we raise the uestion of making a plebeian consul is it the same as if we were to say that a slave or a freedman should attain that office Have you any conception of the contempt in which you are held They would take from you were it possible a part of the daylight That you breathe that you speak that you have the shape of men fills them with resentment Book IV iii 7

things have not yet been done never to be put in practice even if it be expedient Book IV iv 1Finally I would ask is it you or the Roman People who have supreme authority Did the banishment of the kings bring you dominion or to all men eual liberty Book IV v 1 Book 5 Gauls at RomeOne of my favorite characters in the book is Marcus Furius Camillus one of Rome s great early generals He was given at his death the title of Second Founder of Rome after he helped to defend a sacked Rome against the Senoni chieftain Brennus and his gallic warriorsSome men are generals Some are statesmen Others just seem to have it all Camellus is one of those men who seem destined to lead protect and inspire These three books are filled with battles wars and manly martial speeches I think one of the best parts of these early Roman histories of Livy are his speeches Obviously he is embellishing things and probably making a great deal up but still this is damn good stuff Here are some of Livy s best lines Do we think the bodies of our soldiers so effeminate their hearts so faint that they cannot endure to be one winter in camp away from home that like sailors they must wage war with an eye on the

Livy s first 5 books managed to be both a uite boring and a uite exciting experience I have never read Roman history in a format uite like Livy s before He is almost the epitome of Annalistic writing I know that s probably not the right thing to describe this as He painstakingly discusses almost every year from the foundation of Rome to the expulsion and defeat of the Gauls It does not matter if no events occur in that year Livy makes sure to give you the names of the ConsulsMilitary Tribunes and a statement that nothing happened This annalistic approach is what made parts of the book so sluggish to me I would be interested in the themes that Livy was presenting and arguably casting onto this early period but at the same time I would be bogged down by the constant and repetitive flow of information Large chunks of the book especially books 3 and 4 would consist of very little beyond tribunician agitation patricians fighting back and then a uick resolution due to an invasion by the Aeui Volsci andor Veii That being said this book contained so much interesting information that would keep me constantly engaged with the work I feel that there is to dissect in Livy s work here than in any other work by an ancient author that I have read before There are layers and layers of information and symbolicpoetic devices to dig into If you like thinking about obscure and no longer extant narratives of RomanItalian history than Livy is your man Not only does Livy uote early Roman historians but it also appears that he uotes Etruscan sources These diverging narratives are seen throughout the most readily able to be called to mind being a discussion of Etruscan and Gaulic interactions in the 7th and 6th centuries BC Another interesting aspect for me was Livy s desire to describe the beginnings of things The entire Monarchy gives explanations for a wide variety of things and this continues all the way until the end of book 5 For me the most interesting aspect of this was what appears to be Livy s penchant to be anachronistic The struggle of the orders begins almost instantly and so to does tribunican abuse of power that other writers would say started with the Gracchi Tied into this is the Roman ideal of teaching by example The struggle of the orders is really keyed into this idea of cohesion and peace being necessary for Rome to be stable and victorious
