Book description

About the Book

Books on Italian History often commence with the rise of Rome, beginning as a small kingdom, and growing into the Roman Empire eventually spanned the entire peripheries of the Mediterranean Sea, the superhighway of its day. The empire succumbed to the Goths, but Italy rose again, leading the Renaissance in art and science, and leading in exploration and trade that created wealth. While the French and Hapsburg empires captured parts of Italy, during the 19th century it threw off foreign domination and united as a country again. Titles include: Life of Victor Emmanuel II, First King of Italy, Maria Sophia, Queen of Naples, The Rise of the Republic of Venice, The Makers of Modern Italy: Mazzini - Cavour - Garibaldi, and Der 20. September: Erzählung aus der Belagerung und Eroberung Roms 1870.

Also in this Book

The Classical Drama of ancient Greece has been preserved, as have many classical plays from ancient Roman society, and the Renaissance. Examples of classical and early drama include: Dramas of the Ancient World, The Trojan Women of Euripides, Oedipus, King of Thebes, The Prometheus of Æschylus, and The Ajax of Sophocles.

And in this Book

Historical Fiction books set their characters and plot at some time in the past, providing adequate background on the customes and mores of that time to make it seem believable to the reader, whilst not necessarily remaining true to actual historical events in that setting. This genre became quite popular in Europe and North America during the 19th century. Examples include: A Plot and a Peerage, Uncle Moses, Vathek; An Arabian Tale, The Naulahka: A Story of West and East, The Bindweed: A Romantic Novel Concerning the Late Queen of Servia, and Hawk's Nest, or the last of the Cahoonshees.
