The resource has been added to your collection
Created and maintained by Barbara McManus at the College of New Rochelle, this Website was constructed for a course taught by McManus entitled Rome in Film, Fiction, and Fact. The Website consists of pages on different historical and cultural topics, including Roman slavery; the rebellion of Spartacus; Julius Caesar, Antony, Octavian, and Cleopatra; Augustus and Tiberius; Caligula; Roman Republican government; Roman social classes; the Roman army; chariot racing; gladitorial games; theatrical entertainment; and more. Each page offers substantial information in hypertext on its subject and links to a Sources page listing Web and print resources for further study. A link is also provided from the homepage to McManus's syllabus, which links these materials into her course structure. McManus's approach, juxtaposing contemporary representations of Rome in literature and film with verified historical research, strikes us as satisfyingly both classical and postmodern.
