An Interpretive Introduction by Karl Galinsky. Grand political accomplishment and artistic productivity were the hallmarks of Augustus Caesar’s reign 31 B. Although much research has been ahgustan on individual facets culturf Augustan culture, Karl Galinsky’s book is the first in decades to present a unified overview, o Grand political accomplishment and artistic productivity were the hallmarks of Augustus Caesar’s reign 31 B. Although much research has been done on individual facets of Augustan culture, Karl Galinsky’s book is the first in decades to present a unified overview, one that brings together political and social history, art, literature, architecture, and religion.
Weaving analysis and narrative throughout a richly illustrated text, Galinsky provides not only an enjoyable account of the major ideas of the age, but also an interpretation of the creative tensions and contradictions that made for its vitality and influence.
The time is right for a work that interweaves Augustan history, literature, and art, and Augustqn Galinsky is one of the very few scholars who has enough expertise in all three areas to do this successfully In sum, Augustan Culture is a book that makes the reader think and will help shape Augustan studies for the rest of the decade and well beyond.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 03, James Miller rated it it was amazing. I first used this book for an undergraduate essay on whether Augustus’ famous “rem publicam ex mea potestate in senatus populique Romani arbitrium transtuli” meant what it seemed to. To my shame I read the key bits and then forgot augusyan read the rest even though the bits I read have shaped my work and teaching since. I was glad therefore to pick the book back up and read it through more carefully and with attention to how certain passages can be made useful for school age learners.
All Latin is trans I first used this augustann for an undergraduate essay on whether Augustus’ famous “rem publicam ex mea potestate in senatus populique Romani arbitrium transtuli” meant what cuulture seemed to. All Latin is translated; all ideas are thoroughly explored; illustrations abound; I think this is an excellent text.
Augustan Culture: An Interpretive Introduction
Aug 18, Phil rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a re-read for me, but a good one. It had changed my thinking about the Augustan poets and the degree of state control that was even possible at the time.
culthre It was good to be reminded of some nuances that I’d forgotten and to re-read the sections on archaology in light of my more recent interest in the topic.
