Abstract

As a child I remember reading in ancient history about the colorful, violent, and tragic end of a powerful city in northern Africa--Carthage. The story fired my imagination when I first encountered it but was merely committed to memory amidst the sweep of many other subjects and interests at that impressionable age. With the passage of time the name of Hannibal recurrently appeared, and I read various accounts of his crossing the Alps.

Soon after I became interested in creative writing, the dramatic story of Carthage once again struck me. I began in my leisure to study Carthaginian history--what fragments of it remain. The four stories presented here provide glimpses of the Punic wars and their aftermath in Rome.
