Abstract
After Henrik Ibsen published his play Catilina (1850) an academic movement was launched to rehabilitate the reputation of Lucius Sergius Catilina within the historical cannon.
Discontents at Rome: 63 B.C. demonstrates that their are two distinct periods in the interpretation of the Bellum Catilinae; Voltaire's Rome Sauvee (1752) and before and Ibsen's Catilina (1850) and returns Catilina to his former reputation as an ancient villain who precipitated the downfall of the Roman republic.
The work is copiously annotated. 709 pages.
