A romance of the 5th century, during which the various scenes defined within the 'Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire ' are reset to fit the aim of the writer. simply old personages are brought into the story,— the Emperor Honorius, and Alaric the Goth; and those reach just a secondary significance. one of the historic incidents used are the arriving of the Goths on the gates of Rome, the Famine, the final efforts of the besieged, the Treaty of Peace, the advent of the Dragon of Brass, and the gathering of the ransom,— each one of these debts being based at the chronicles of Zosimus. This booklet doesn't convey the intricacy of plot and smart building of the author's smooth society tales; however it is stuffed with motion, shiny in colour, and sufficiently with regards to background to express a dramatic feel of the Rome of Honorius and the closing-in of the barbarians.
