As Romans Did






Publisher:  Oxford University Press, Incorporated
Summary: An anthology of translations from Latin and Greek source materials, As the Romans Did offers a revealing look at everyday Roman life, providing clear, lively translations of a fascinating array of documents--from personal letters, farming manuals, medical texts, and recipes, to poetry, graffiti, and tombstone inscriptions. Each selection is newly translated into readable, contemporary English and fully annotated to g...ive necessary historical and cultural background. In addition, the book includes abundant biographical notes, maps, appendices, and cross-references to related topics, as well as an extensive bibliography, providing students with substantial background material to broaden their understanding of the selections. Arranged thematically into chapters on family life, housing, education, entertainment, religion, and other important topics, the translations reveal the ambitions and aspirations not only of the upper class, but of the average Roman citizen as well; they tell not only of the success and failure of Rome's grandiose imperialist policies, but also of the pleasures and hardships of everyday life.

Shelton, Jo-Ann R. is the author of As Romans Did, published under ISBN 9780195041774 and 0195041771. Two As Romans Did textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, one used from the cheapest price of $12.49, or buy new starting at $70.58.
