Opis w j. angielskim:

In this second edition of Keaveney’s classic biography, a fresh generation of students, scholars and readers are introduced to one of the most pivotal figures in the outgoing Roman Empire. A definitive book in its field, this second edition is a must read; completely rewritten and updated to include the further discoveries of the last two decades, it blows wide open traditional views of Sulla as a tyrant and harsh military dictator and instead delivers a compellingly complex portrait of a man obsessed with the belief that he was blessed with divine favour. Written by a leading authority on the classical world, this lively and entertaining book transports us through Sulla’s rise from poverty and obscurity to his dictatorship of Rome, highlighting his dedication and achievements in better ordering the Republic before his decline a generation later.

Sulla is one of the most controversial figures of the Roman Republic. A harsh military leader devoted to the idea of Rome’s destiny, he has often been portrayed as simply a tyrant or despot. Arthur Keaveney’s biography, first published more than twenty years ago, overturned that view in favor of a more complex portrait of a man obsessed with the belief that he was the recipient of divine favour: Sulla Felix.
