(p.24) 2 Looking at Caesar
Spectacular Power in the Greek and Roman City

Andrew Bell (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that Julius Caesar, in gesturing to impress, reveals the fluidity of assumptions governing political life in Rome. His complex styles of self-definition correlate with the mixed nature of the Roman polity, in which elements of both demotic populism and kingliness are to be found in his more spectacular behaviour.

Keywords:   Julius Caesar, Roman politics, Roman citizens, res republica, power
