To my wisdom, this has develop into the traditional remark for the 1st five books of Livy. it's fun to learn a few of the modern reviews--none of which have been altogether favorable. them all appeared skeptical of the length--as an identical sized remark on all extant books of Livy may run over 7000 pages. The longest overview i may locate, years after booklet, in simple terms criticized the quite brief advent, and frankly had no longer appeared a lot extra on the observation itself!
Here's an excerpt from a overview discussing the breadth of Ogilvie's scholarship:
Abundant statement on
political background and prosopography is furnished,
as a truly priceless complement to Livy's political
inexperience, his moralizing bent, and his not
unjustified perspective that the early background of Rome
is mythical at top. substantial recognition is
paid to Roman religion-again an important emphasis
in view of Livy's tendency to straddle between
his personal desire to take faith heavily, and the
contemporary skepticism that observed piety as an
affectation for political purposes.
