9780198148777: 1: A Commentary on Livy, Books VI-X: Volume I: Introduction and Book VI (Vol 1 (1st of A 3 Vol Set)

Books VI-X of Livy's history of Rome describe the beginnings of Rome's conquest of Italy in the fourth century BC and contain some of Livy's finest writing. The first of three volumes, this book offers an extensive introduction and commentary to Book VI. The introduction provides a full analysis of the Roman annalistic tradition, of Livy's style and narrative technique, and of the manuscript tradition; the commentary devotes equal attention to historical, literary, linguistic, and textual matters.
