Op het eind van haar boek maakt Beard nog eens duidelijk waar het haar om gaat. Ze schrijft niet zozeer over individuele keizers maar vooral over de functie of het instituut keizer over de eeuwen heen, en hoe daarin niet zoveel verandert ondanks de vele verschillende tussen alle keizers. "Ik heb al vaak benadrukt dat het Oude Rome ons weinig te leren heeft, in de zin dat we er niet hoeven te zoeken naar pasklare oplossingen voor onze problemen. We moeten van de Romeinen geen antwoorden verwachten. Maar een verkenning van hun wereld helpt wel om met een andere blik naar de onze te kijken". (p. 380)… (mais)

This book has lots of good information discussing the Rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Some parts of this is quite dense. The part I enjoyed the most was women’s lives during this time. Mary Beard discusses how there are part in Roman views were similar to some of todays views. I also enjoyed that she brought in plays that were popular at the time and how that plays in to what was happening in their world.

i get what she’s saying and she’s right in some regards but a lot is slightly questionable. Her summary of Herland is just inaccurate, at least it’s not the way i read it !

The author makes her intentions very clear; this is not a linear, chronological narrative, but an examination of the institution of one-man rule in Rome as it was experienced by the men who occupied the post during the first and second centuries. It concentrates on how the office functioned, the men's quotidian lives, and how they were chosen (and, often, deposed). Beard writes in an informal, breezy, sometimes salty style which is quite winning, and the information here is pretty unique, to my knowledge. The closest thing to a criticism I would have is that, in her close examinations of the mundane, sometimes the topics get a little, well, mundane; I particularly could have dome without the longish chapter on palace architecture, not exactly on topic and which made a pretty long book even longer. Still, I enjoyed this throughout and gained a great deal from her approach.… (mais)
