 Remembering the Roman People: Essays on Late-Republican Politics and Literature T. P. Wiseman 9780199239764
In the Roman republic, only the People could pass laws, only the People could elect politicians to office, and the very word republica meant 'the People's business'. So why is it always assumed that the republic was an oligarchy? The main reason is that most of what we know about it we know from Cicero, a great man and a great writer, but also an active right-wing politician who took it for...

 The Roman Audience: Classical Literature as Social History T. P. Wiseman 9780198718352
Who were Roman authors writing for? Only a minority of the population was fully literate and books were very expensive, individually hand-written on imported papyrus. So does it follow that great poets and prose authors like Virgil and Livy, Ovid and Petronius, were writing only for the cultured and the privileged? It is this modern consensus that is challenged in this volume.
In an ambitious...

 Remus: A Roman Myth T. P. Wiseman T. P. Wiseman 9780521483667
Romulus founded Rome -- but why does the myth give him a twin brother Remus, who is killed at the moment of the foundation? This mysterious legend has been oddly neglected.

In this book, Professor Wiseman provides, for the...
