Book description

Set in the turbulent years after Caesar's assassination in 44 BC, Season Two of the HBO-BBC series Rome lays bare a city shaken by the violent power struggle between Octavian, Caesar's adopted son and heir, and Mark Antony, his most trusted general, bound in the seductive spell of Cleopatra. This is the first academic volume to explore this critically acclaimed and commercially successful drama. Focusing on the series' historical framework, visual and narrative style, thematic overtones, and influence on modern popular culture, this book also engages with the authenticity of the production and considers its place in the tradition of epic films and television series set in ancient Rome. With a foreword by the producer and historical consultant on the series, this volume is both scholarly and entertaining. It will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars in Classics and Ancient History as well as Film and Media Studies.
