Quotes

But I think happiness springs from another source, a far deeper one that doesnt depend on will because it comes from love.
I know, 0 Caesar, that thou art awaiting my arrival with impatience, that thy true heart of a friend is yearning day and night for me. I know that thou art ready to cover me with gifts, make me prefect of the pretorian guards, and command Tigellinus to be that which the gods made him, a mule-driver in those lands which thou didst inherit after poisoning Domitius. Pardon me, however, for I swear to thee

Rome during the reign of Nero was a glorious place for the emperor & his court- there were grand feasts, tournaments for poets, & exciting games & circuses filling the days & nights. The pageantry & pretentious displays of excessMoreRome during the reign of Nero was a glorious place for the emperor & his court- there were grand feasts, tournaments for poets, & exciting games & circuses filling the days & nights. The pageantry & pretentious displays of excess were sufficient to cloy the senses of participants as well as to offend the sensitive.

Petronius, a generous & noble Roman, a man of the world much in favor at the court of Nero, is intrigued by a strange tale related by his nephew Marcus Vinitius of his encounter with a mysterious young woman called Ligia with whom Vinitius falls madly in love. Ligia, a captured Kings daughter & a one-time hostage of Rome, is now a foster child of a noble Roman household. Shes also a Christian.The setting of the narrative was prepared with utmost care.

Henryk Sienkiewicz visited the Roman settings many times & was thoroughly educated in the historical background. As an attempt to create the spirit of antiquity, the novel met with unanimous acclaim, which earned the Nobel Prize in literature for the author in 1905. As a vision of ancient Rome & early Christianity it hasnt yet been surpassed, over a century later.
