Miles reveals in Livy's history a creative interplay between traditional stories . In this challenging book Miles argues that Livy's picture of early Rome is a reflection of the ideals, tensions, and concerns of his own day. Rome coped with changes by casting them as continuities with the past; Livy in his idiosyncratic reinterpretation sees the contradictions, ambiguities, and positive lessons in those continuities. T.

Some critcs of the Roman historian Livy (59 BC - AD 17) have dismissed his work as a compendium of stale narratives and conventioanl attitudes. In this book Miles attempts to reveal in Livy's history a creative interplay between traditional stories, contemporary ideological assumptions, and the historian's own perspective from the margins of Roman aristocracy. Drawing on a range of critical approaches, Miles considers Livy's stance as a historian, the ways in which he reworked his sources, and his interpretation of such historical phenomena as recurrence, continuity, and change. He focuses on the foundation stories with which Livy begins his history, paying particular attention to the stories of the abduction of the Sabine women and of Romulus and Remus.
