The Last Days of Pompeii is a novel written by the baron Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1834.The novel was inspired by the painting The Last Day of Pompeii by the Russian painter Karl Briullov, which Bulwer-Lytton had seen in Milan. It culminates in the cataclysmic destruction of the city of Pompeii by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.The novel uses its characters to contrast the decadent culture of 1st-century Rome with both older cultures and coming trends. The protagonist, Glaucus, represents the Greeks who have been subordinated by Rome, and his nemesis Arbaces the still older culture of Egypt. Olinthus is the chief representative of the nascent Christian religion, which is presented favourably but not uncritically. The Witch of Vesuvius, though she has no supernatural powers, shows Bulwer-Lytton's interest in the occult - a theme which would emerge in his later writing, particularly "The Coming Race".… (mere)

This is a richly written early 19th century novel. While the setting is suitably dramatic as per the title, the actual events of the impending eruption of Vesuvius and destruction of Pompeii are very much in the background, against the central plot of the rivalry between the Egyptian priest Arbaces and the Greek Glaucus over the same woman, Ione. Another priest Apaceides (who has converted to Christianity) is murdered by Arbaces and Glaucus is framed it. About to face a hungry lion in the arena, he is only saved by the apocalypse itself. This novel is very melodramatic and theatrical to the modern reader, but I enjoyed its richness, despite some occasional overlong digressions - though even these had their poignancy when compared to the ruins found in recent times.

La colonia romana, aristocrática y mercantil, de influencia griega y etrusca, exhibía su prosperidad en sus palacios, mercados, termas y teatros. En el año 79 una erupción del Vesubio la destruyó por completo. Unos pocos habitantes pudieron escapar, los demás murieron bajo varios metros de cenizas y piedras, asfixiados por los gases o abrasados por la lava. El amor entre Iona y Glauco es el centro de la historia magistralmente construida, donde el reflejo de costumbres, juegos y espectáculos de la ciudad es tan vivo como el de la psicología de los personajes o la destructiva furia del volcán.

Not a story so much about the Pompeii volcanic event, but a love story set in Pompeii in the months leading up to the eruption and eventual destruction of Pompeii.
Long rambling soliloquys concerning religions, personal feelings, descriptions of the busy life of the times in that city.
For a modern reader, can be very boring (I merely scanned much of these passages that often ran two or more pages). The love story itself in interesting and there is great flavor of the times.
Dialogue is Shakespearean... thee, thow, dost....
I recommend based on the historic interest of the. book. ( )
