Editorial Reviews


"With her usual astute scholarship, Fantham has presented a cogent, illuminating analysis of the dialogue within the context of the failing senatorial government of the late republic. Her analysis is as important for understanding Cicero and his era as it is for understanding the practice of oratory, rhetoric in Rome, and the training of the orator/statesman.... This is a significant contribution to the understanding of Cicero, his dialogue, and his world. Highly recommended."--Choice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since I'm only on page nine of the book I cannot give a proper evaluation of the entire book. However it is clear that great detail is presented on the specifics of Cicero's time. I look forward to further reading.
