Editorial Reviews

Review

This volume is a most welcome and much needed resource for the classroom, and a marked improvement over the Penguin editions of Cicero's selected speeches and selected political speeches, which it should supersede. A very well-chosen selection of speeches, accurately and fluidly translated, and handsomely produced. I especially appreciate the inclusion of clear maps and the section "Roman institutions and offices" which should prove especially useful for students. --Amanda Wilcox, Williams College



Zetzel's translation of ten speeches by Cicero is a welcome addition for anyone interested in the works of Cicero or late Republican history. The short Introduction presents the reader with a concise overview of Cicero's life and the milieu in which the speeches were written. . . . followed by a brief and very clear summary of Roman Institutions and Offices, which includes a description of Roman nomenclature, public offices, and political institutions. . . . The individual introductions preceding each translation are succinct and useful guides to the topics and issues surrounding each speech. . . . The translations themselves are clear and readable. Together, these ten speeches deliver an overview of some of the most significant moments of the late Republic. This volume is an excellent guide to the events of this period but also, and perhaps more importantly, to Cicero himself. This translation gives students of Cicero a window into his life and his beliefs. It presents his wit, humor, and style in an engaging way that should appeal to many modern readers. --Alison Jeppesen, University of Calgary
