Abstract:

"In this companion volume to his Philosophical Books of Cicero, Paul MacKendrick provides detailed summaries of a representative sample of Cicero's speeches, each followed by analytical sections on context, law and rhetoric." "In the course of his career Cicero addressed many different audiences, including the people, the Senate, the pontiffs, jurors, and in two cases Julius Caesar himself. The selection also includes two examples of Ciceronian invective at its most biting: Against Vatinius and Against Piso." "This fascinating examination of Cicero's art, which includes copious notes and comprehensive indexes, will be of great value to anyone with an interest in the Roman legal system, or in the context and function of rhetoric in the Ancient World."--Jacket.
