Seriously? Who cares? The literature is rubbish. The politics are even worse. There are pockets of brilliance and honesty, but they are fighting a lost cause badly--it's cute, but they're no Leonidas.
More importantly, why do I have to learn about it? I don't care at all. I don't even really care about Augustus' later life. It gets boring.
There's a reason we call it "silver." Because it's rubbish. They use prepositions! That is garbage.
