Pliny's letters provide a detailed view of Roman legal, literary, and daily life. The correspondence between the Emperor Trajan and Pliny when he was a governor in the East show a first hand look at Roman administration. Instead of the tyrannical despot that film often shows, Trajan's letters show him to be a humane, hands on administrator who is very concerned to give good government with justice and considerable humanity.Was this review helpful?
