Tietoja tekijästä

Tacitus was a Roman senator who survived the terror launched among the Roman aristocracy by the emperor Domitian to rise to prominence and become first suffect consul and later proconsul of Asia. His historical works, which originally covered the first century of the empire from the accession of näytä lisää Tiberius to the assassination of Domitian, are an indictment of the emperors and of the senatorial aristocracy under imperial autocracy. They remain the fundamental sources of imperial history in this period. The embarrasing paradox of Tacitus's success under a "bad" emperor appears to have had an effect on his works, whose tone may have struck contemporaries as a defense of his prominence under a despot. Tacitus is thus often thought to have nursed a nostalgia for the Republic and the free nobility of its senatorial order. However, his attitude is less genuinely backward-looking than occupied with the contemporary moral and political problems of aristocratic honor. In The Annals, which survives only in part, he examines palace politics under the Julio-Claudians. The unspoken questions that occupy this examination are those of the possibilities of uncompromised and dignified service under despotism, and the opportunities therein to mitigate its evil. These themes emerge into daylight in The Agricola, his laudatory biography of his father-in-law, the Roman general who conquered Britain. The work portrays Agricola as a straightforward military man who preserved his integrity and the admiration of his contemporaries under the emperor Domitian, even though his greatest achievements went unrewarded. Tacitus was a trained advocate, and fundamental to his outlook is his prosecutorial purpose. He states the case against the emperors and others who attract his unfavorable judgment. This bias can be difficult for the reader to overcome. But Tacitus also played by the rules of advocacy. He appears to bring to light facts unfavorable to his case in order to interpret them according to the necessities of his argument. His lawyerly honesty thereby allows the historian to dissect the facts from their matrix in order to use them in reconstructing a historical account of the first century of the empire which is more balanced, if inevitably less committed, than that of Tacitus.

Kirja-arvosteluja

Se trata de tres breves obras de Tácito. Este libro no tiene demasiadas notas a pie de página para lo que suele ser esta colección, sin embargo se agradece precisamente en obras de Tácito que no se interrumpa tanto la lectura con tantas notas. La belleza de los textos de este autor es patente incluso en castellano, en esta cuidada traducción. La brevísima biografía de Agrícola, el suegro de Tácito es además una fuente única sobre la conquista de Britania, Agrícola o el mismo autor. La enumeración de pueblos germánicos en su Germania, las caracterizaciones de esos pueblos en contraste con Roma, también nos aportan una idea bastante bien formada del concepto de Estado y sociedad que veía en la Roma del momento el autor y sus ideales. En último lugar, el Diálogo sobre los oradores se nos muestra como un ejercicio retórico muy interesante que inevitablemente nos recuerda a El orador de Cicerón. Fuente inagotable también del nivel retórico de la élite senatorial en esta época, además de mencionarse eventos y personajes que apoyan las informaciones de otros autores originales.… (lisätietoja)

The Histories and the Annals, together cover the history of the empire from the time of the Julio-Claudians to the reign of Domitian in a total of 30 books. But only one-third of them are extant. The Histories covers the political unrest that followed the death of Nero, the year of the four emperors, Galba (r. 68-69 CE), Otho (r. 69 CE), Vitellius (r. 69 CE), and Vespasian (r. 69-79 CE), ending with the rise of Domitian. While he had little respect for the first three of the four emperors, Tacitus believed that the rise of Vespasian presented a sign of a good future.

The Annals begins with the death of Augustus and ends prior to the death of Nero; lost, however, are two years of Tiberius (r. 14-37 CE), all of Caligula (r. 37-41 CE), one-half of Claudius (r. 43-54 CE), and the final two years of Nero.

He wrote during an important time as the Empire was establishing itself as the dominant power on the Mediterranean Sea, but he repeated his warning that Germania and Asia could present future problems. Although he seemed to admire the first emperor, Augustus, Tacitus believed that beginning with him, the Roman Senate became a diminished body.

Throughout his works, Tacitus regrets the loss of the Republic and speaks of the decline of the empire which he attributes to the decay of the city's ever-growing decency - something his beloved Cicero saw in his own time.

The classic account of Rome between the death of Augustus and that of Nero. Grant's translation is quite readable. The maps aren't great.
