Write The First Customer Review

Five authors, all exiled from Rome, are examined in this analysis, which takes its consideration virtually through to the end of the classical era. The author examines the various means of literary sublimation that individual exiles - Cicero, Ovid, Seneca the Younger, Dio Chrysostom and Anicius Manlius Boethius - found for the feeling of social and political isolation they experienced. This work is intended for all those interested in Roman life and literature, and in the phenomenon of exile.
