Rome Season Two

Margaret M. Toscano

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “Class, Chaos, and Control in Rome,” by Margaret M. Toscano, illuminates how the second season of the series Rome engages in a high-low narrative technique for its storylines. This chapter describes the network of male bonding that is formed between Octavian and Pullo, and also those formed between Mark Antony and Vorenus. This chapter reveals how these relationships criss-cross the boundaries of social class and focus instead intensely on issues of personal temperament and compromise.

Keywords:   Rome, social class, male bonding, Octavian, Mark Antony
