Roman Literature

Latin - the language of the Romans is a lasting legacy of their cultural dominance over the western world. While Greek literature dominated the east and even scholarly circles of Rome itself, writers of Latin developed in their own right.

Many works were recorded and preserved in the original Latin, including comedy, history, rhetoric, satire and poetry, and the written form continued to shape European language and literature into the present day.
