Plutarch: Demosthenes and Cicero

Translated with Introduction and Commentary by Andrew Lintott

Clarendon Ancient History Series

  • The first full English translation and commentary of the Lives of Demosthenes and Cicero treated as a single work for nearly a century.
  • The commentaries are not only about two distinguished orators and politicians, but about the failure of democratic/republican government in Rome.
  • Includes a detailed introduction which discusses the background and context to the Lives, essential information about the author, and the philosophy which underlies Plutarch's presentation of the two personalities.
