A Commentary on Livy, Books VI-X
Volume II: Books VII-VIII
S. P. Oakley
Clarendon Press
This magisterial work, to be published in three volumes, is the first full-scale commentary to be written in modern times on this part of Livy's ...
Description
Books VI-X of Livy's history of Rome describe the beginnings of Rome's conquest of Italy in the fourth century BC. Stephen Oakley has produced the first full-scale, scholarly commentary to be written in modern times on this part of the history. The second of three volumes, this book is a sequel to the introduction and commentary on Book VI published earlier in 1997. It contains the commentary on Books VII and VIII, in which Livy describes Rome's annexation of Capua and Naples and her first fighting against the Samnites, the powerful tribe that lived in the mountains of central Italy.
The commentary devotes equal attention to historical, literary, linguistic, and textual matters. An excursus provides a brief introduction to the Samnites and to the terrain of the Samnite wars. The remaining volume, which is forthcoming, will deal with Books IX and X. An indispensable work of reference for anyone interested in Latin literature and early Roman history, as well as for scholars of Livy himself, these three volumes represent a major new contribution to Latin scholarship.

A Commentary on Livy, Books VI-X
Volume IV: Book X
S. P. Oakley
A major, authoritative scholarly commentary, with no equal on the market
Of interest to both historians and classicists
Description
Livy's tenth book, an exciting climax to his first decade, narrates two political advances of 300 BC, the Lex Valeria de provocatione and the opening up of major priesthoods to plebeians; it also tells of the Spartan Cleonymus' landfall at the site that long afterwards would be Venice. Its main topic, however, is Roman warfare, above all the outbreak of the Third Samnite War and the decisive battle of Sentium in 295 BC. This new commentary, which completes Professor Oakley's exposition of Books VI-X, deals comprehensively with all aspects of Livy's work, including the literary structure of his narrative, the historical and topographical problems of the Samnite Wars, the poetical and archaic language sometimes affected by Livy, and the numerous textual problems posed by the extant manuscripts. An extensive section of addenda and corrigenda contains revisions to the preceding volumes.
