Resumo:
"The decapitation of Marcus Tullius Cicero has inspired horror and wonder since the event. Less attention, however, has been devoted to his second dismemberment: the severing of his right hand. But behind Mark Antony's order to bring back not only the orator's head but also the hand that had written the Phillippics lies a conflation of oratory and writing that merits explanation."

schema:reviewBody""The decapitation of Marcus Tullius Cicero has inspired horror and wonder since the event. Less attention, however, has been devoted to his second dismemberment: the severing of his right hand. But behind Mark Antony's order to bring back not only the orator's head but also the hand that had written the Phillippics lies a conflation of oratory and writing that merits explanation." "This book examines the relationship between Ciceronian oratory and the written word from several points of view. It is shown that the blurring of the distinction between writing and speech evident in Civero's violent end was, in fact, the work of Cicero himself and had begun early in his career, long before the writing of the Phillippics. The author argues that the major force behind Cicero's rise to fame as an orator was, paradoxically, his own ability to exploit Rome's growing dependence on the written word." "Framed as an investigation into the motive of Antony's crime, the book surveys Cicero's career from beginning to end and reveals, in vivid detail, a world often mired in written texts. Sure to raise questions about simplistic views of Rome as an 'oral society', Shane Butler's groundbreaking study also offers a fresh look at Cicero himself, struggling to turn skills born of his equestrian background into an enduring reputation for eloquence."--Jacket."
