Summary
In taking up history, Tacitus joined the line of succession of those who described and interpreted their own period, and he covered the story from the political situation that followed Nero's death to the close of the Flavian dynasty. Tacitus was a Roman orator, public official and a student of rhetoric, which provided a general literary education that included the practice of prose composition. He was probably the greatest historian and one of the greatest prose stylists who wrote in the Latin language. The histories begin on January 1, 69 A.D., with Galba in power and proceed to the death of Domitian, in 96 A.D. The five books of the history still extant are part of an original work of 12 to 14 books. The narrative as it now exists, with its magnificent introduction, is a powerfully sustained piece of writing. Tacitus, a Roman orator and public official, is considered one of the greatest historians as well as one of the greatest prose stylists of the Latin language. Because Tacitus was a conscious literary stylist, both his thought and his manner of expression gave life to his work. He wrote in the grand style, helped by the solemn and poetic usage of the Roman tradition, and he exploited the Latin qualities of strength, rhythm, and color
