    schema:description ""The influence of Cicero is everywhere to be found. His rhetorical and philosophical writings have made an inescapable impact on the history of western culture. He impressed figures such as Augustine, Jerome, Petrarch, Erasmus, Martin Luther, John Locke, David Hume, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Cicero's wide appeal means that he is becoming a popular subject in classical reception studies. But no study has yet offered a comprehensive overview of 'Cicero' as a character in stage plays in the early modern and modern periods. This is the first book to discuss the plays in which Cicero appears as a character. It includes works by Ben Jonson (1611, Catiline His Conspiracy), Voltaire (1752, Rome sauvée, ou Catilina), Richard Cumberland (1761, The Banishment of Cicero), Henry Bliss (1847, Cicero, A drama) and, most recently, Mike Poulton (Imperium, adapted from the novels of Robert Harris in 2017). Each oeuvre is placed in its historical and cultural context; the plots are discussed in relation to the ancient sources. These analyses demonstrate how the presentation and assessment of the figure of Cicero develop over time and how this character is exploited for varying political statements. The wealth of material in this book will attract scholars of Classics, drama and literary studies as well as historians of ideas and of the early modern age"--"@en ;
