Editorial Reviews

Review

“Here, for our age, is [Marcus’s] great work presented in its entirety, strongly introduced and freshly, elegantly translated.” —Robert Fagles

From the Inside Flap

A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, Marcus Aurelius?s Meditations remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus?s insights and advice?on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others?have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style.

In Gregory Hays?s new translation?the first in a generation?Marcus?s thoughts speak with a new immediacy: never before have they been so directly and powerfully presented.
