The Roman World of Cicero's De Oratore

Elaine Fantham

The Roman World of Cicero's De Oratore offers a wide introduction to Cicero's political and cultural world, and illustrates, by its analysis of his imaginary dialogue between statesmen, how he introduced the principles of Greek philosophy and rhetoric into Roman education, so that his work became the basis of humanist ideals in the Renaissance and Enlightenment.
