Then here are a couple of references which will help you to analyse the style and content of Tacitus:
- Miller, N. (1969) 'Style and content in Tacitus' in T. A. Dorey (ed.) Tacitus Routledge, 99-116. This is a great example of academic writing, and one which really gets to grips with the idea that content cannot be divorced from style and vice versa. A must-read!
- Roberts, M. (1988) 'The Revolt of Boudicca (Tacitus, Annals 14.29-39) and the Assertion of Libertas in Neronian Rome' AJPh 109, 118-132. An excellent reflection on the Boudiccan revolt and its relationship to other aspects of depiction of Neronian Rome.
- Whitton, C. (2010) 'Agrippina's last words (rpt.)' Omnibus 58, 21-23. A nice short article from the JACT magazine for 'A' level students with some useful observations.
- Nice, A. (1993) 'Superstition and Religion in Tacitus' and Dio's accounts of the Boudican revolt'. Pegasus 36, 14-18. An early piece by yours truly (based on a chapter of the M. Phil.) which appeared in the University of Exeter Classics Magazine.
- Annals 14, chs. 1-9; 29-37. Available here.
