Nero: Reality and Legend

B.H. Warmington

Chatto and Windus 1981
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992 http://dannyreviews.com/
Nero: Reality and Legend is an extended essay on the emperor Nero, structured thematically rather than narratively. It doesn't really have anything original to say: if you are familiar with the period it will be old hat; if you aren't then you would be much better off reading Tacitus.

Skip this one.

March 1992
