'Nero had come to the conclusion that wherever his mother Agrippina was she was intolerable. He decided to kill her'

Tracing the Roman genius across six centuries, from the Republic to the fall of the Empire, this anthology includes introductions to each author. Many of the translations, by writers such as Milton, Pope, Swift, Byron and Graves, have become famous in their own right.
