Advanced Latin: Livy

Livy in Book I of Ab Urbe Condita tells the story of the regal time of Rome, from the arrival of the Trojans in Italy, to the founding(s) of the city, to the banishment of the kings. In this book, our main focus this quarter, we find some of the most famous episodes of Roman legendary history, that, masterfully recounted by Livy, have been looked back to through the centuries as ultimate definitinos of Roman ideals and virtues. What makes Livy's story-telling so compelling? What kind of history did Livy think he was writing?
