1899. Illustrated. Froude believed that the objective of writing history was simply to record human actions and, as such, should be written as a drama. Accordingly, in his historic accounts he gives prominence to the personal element, but, as a result, he sometimes failed to understand the context of the period on which he was writing. Froude's work is often criticized for its prejudice and inaccuracy. His book on Caesar is considered to be a glorification of imperialism and is thought to exhibit his imperfect acquaintance with Roman politics and the life of Cicero.
