Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Cicero was one of the greatest and most human men of antiquity. He was on the closest terms with political giants such as Pompeius and Caesar and far surpassed them in oratorical and legal skills. Since so much of his work survives, he stands as a prism through which we can study the last years of the Roman Republic, above all its transition to the rule of one man. Through a selection from his writings, this book provides a chronological outline of his life and political career, tracing his many successes and ultimate failure.

Format: Paperback
Understand Cicero through Cicero's own words (translated in English). John Murrell does a great job of weaving excerpts from Cicero's writings together to make a linear account of his life during the tumultuous years of the end of the Roman Republic. The excerpts are supplemented with footnotes about the many names and events mentioned by Cicero and which also explain the significance of these details in context of the Republic as a running commentary on political events during Cicero's life. Short introductions to sections give concise bridges from one period of Cicero's life to the next. If you enjoy history, literature and politics of one of the most significant periods in Western history, you will enjoy reading them through Cicero, one of the greatest writers/orators. This book should work very well for a course focused on Cicero and it showcases his more well known speeches and other writings. The graphics and illustrations are helpful in organizing this mosaic of information, but I only lament the absence of a timeline chart and list of Cicero's works to help me connect to the larger sequence of events and writings. This could be a great resource for a Roman Republic course as well. I have definitely become more interested in Cicero because of this book.
