2. Paris cultural decadence The decline of Rome held special relevance for the French. After all, the architects of the French Revolution, like those in America before them, took Republican Rome as their model of governance. Moreover, the French found in Napoléon a Caesar who betrayed the revolution by taking the title of emperor. In French political chronology, the First Republic (1792–1804) is followed by the Napoleonic era known as the First Empire (1804–1815), leading some historians to say that the French repeated several centuries of Roman history in just over two decades.

7. Pastoral , for example, how the early epic poet Hesiod portrayed the countryside as a place of honest toil in his didactic Works and Days , while the emphasis on the countryside as a place of beauty and repose, one of the hallmarks of pastoral as a genre, is already present in the age-old motif of the locus amoenus , or ‘pleasant place’, which we find throughout Greek literature from Homer onwards, especially in the Odyssey ’s portrayal of the fertile lands of the Phaeacians and Cyclopes, the islands of the beguiling Calypso and Circe, and
