Summary

Dionysius of Halicarnassus was a rhetorician, critic and historiographer in Augustan Rome. This volume seeks to understand Dionysius as a writer positioned between Greece and Rome and between rhetoric and historiography. The introduction discusses the complex relationship between Dionysius’ history of early Rome and his rhetorical and critical works, and it presents Dionysius as both thoroughly Greek and very Roman. Dionysius’ works are interpreted as part of the Greek literature of the Augustan Age and as responding to the political, cultural and intellectual climate of Rome under Augustus. The following chapters are presented in three parts: (1) Dionysius and Augustan Rhetoric and Literary Criticism, (2) Dionysius and Augustan Historiography, and (3) Dionysius and Augustan Rome. The introduction concludes with a consideration of Dionysius’ intended audience.
