Excerpt from Latin and English Idiom: An Object Lesson From Livy's Preface
I have endeavoured in Chap. III. To treat Livy as he should be treated - as a fine writer of Latin Prose. Livy is neither an ideal historian nor antiquarian nor lawyer but he is master of his own langu... age, and the more closely one studies him, the more one realizes how magnificently he used his instrument.
In no way can we more clearly appreciate his power than in watching him deal, as it were, with our own language; and this has been my point of view throughout - how would Livy put this or that into Latin or rather (i hope), how has he done it?
