Mary Beard on the Roman Triumph

There’s a book review in the Inky on Mary Beard’s, The Roman Triumph, published by Harvard University Press. “What makes Beard’s book so fascinating is not only the subject, but her way of approaching it, which allows one to see historiography in process. Her attention to every least detail, placing one fact next to another to see whether this or that confirms or challenges a given interpretation, is like watching a forensic specialist working to solve a crime.” You can borrow Roman Triumph from Paley Library. Here are other books by classics scholar Mary Beard. You can also hear a Harvard University Press podcast of Mary Beard discussing her new book. By the way, these podcasts on new books from HUP are very interesting. Listen to them all! ————————————————————————————————————– Subject Guides Classics // Islamic Studies // Jewish Studies // Philosophy // Religion ————————————————————————————————————–

  1. Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..

    Any suggestions? Bless you!
