Paper: You have read Barry Strauss’ book (a product of 2010) and the 1960 movie, Spartacus. I have also


made additional resources available. In a paper of at minimum six pages, compare and contrast these two


works. Both of them cover the same historical person, Spartacus. Compare and contrast their portrayal of


Spartacus. Why are they so different? What aspect of the historical Spartacus gets emphasized, and why? If our interpretation of history tells us as much about history as it does about us, what is transpiring that makes these two portrayals so radically different? In other words, what is happening in the late 1950s and 2000s that becomes reflected in the portrayals of Spartacus?
