Cicero (Marcus Tullius, 106–43 BCE), Roman lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In the fourteenth century Petrarch and other Italian humanists discovered manuscripts containing more than 900 letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man all the more striking because most were not written for publication. Six rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Cicero is in twenty-nine volumes.

In L. Calpurnium Pisonem, Oratio

"[The present edition] will long remain not only the standard commentary on this work, but an indispensable aid to every student of Cicero. Nisbet's choice of the neglected In Pisonem was a happy one. The speech--'a masterpiece of misrepresentation, ' as the editor aptly describes it--is a lively and characteristic example of Cicero's mature oratorical style; it is full of historical interest, and the condition of the text still offers scope to a judicious editor.... If Nisbet's treatment of textual matters deserves the highest praise, scarcely less admirable is the lucid conciseness of his explanatory notes, which, especially on historical topics, are often models of their kind."--Journal of Roman Studies.

Cicero's Speech Pro Rabirio Postumo

Pro Rabirio Postumo is a speech delivered by Cicero in defence of the Roman financier, Gaius Rabirius Postumus, who became embroiled in the 'Egyptian Question' which preoccupied Roman politics throughout the 50s BC. This volume includes the first full-scale commentary in English, as well as a new translation and extensive introduction. It records and examines the particular circumstances surrounding Rabirius Postumus' trial, and it furnishes an intriguing insight into the political forces at work in Rome and Egypt during the late Republican period.

El 5 d’agost del 57 aC, Marc Tul·li Ciceró desembarcava a Brundísium i posava fi al seu exili, després d’aconseguir el tan esperat perdó. Els dos discursos que presentem en aquest volum formen part del conjunt d’actuacions forenses que l’orador protagonitzà durant el període immediatament posterior a aquest fet. Són textos, per això, amb un marcat rerefons polític, determinats en gran mesura per les tenses i oscil·lants relacions de Ciceró amb els membres del triumvirat, principalment amb Cèsar i amb Pompeu. En el primer discurs, Sobre el govern de les províncies consulars, Ciceró defensarà la continuïtat dels comandaments provincials de Cèsar, de qui farà un encès elogi; en el segon, el discurs En defensa de Luci Corneli Balb, l’orador aconseguirà l’absolució d’aquest influent ciutadà originari de Gades, protegit tant de Cèsar com de Pompeu, a qui s’acusava d’haver usurpat la ciutadania romana.

Funny Words in Plautine Comedy

Plautus, Rome's earliest extant poet, was acclaimed by ancient critics above all for his mastery of language and his felicitous jokes; and yet in modern times relatively little attention has been devoted to elucidating these elements fully. In Funny Words in Plautine Comedy, Michael Fontaine reassesses some of the premises and nature of Plautus' comedies. Mixing textual and literary criticism, Fontaine argues that many of Plautus' jokes and puns were misunderstood already in antiquity, and that with them the names and identities of some familiar characters were misconceived. Central to his study are issues of Plautine language, style, psychology, coherence of characterization, and irony. By examining the comedian's tendency to make up and misuse words, Fontaine sheds new light on the close connection between Greek and Roman comedy. Considerable attention is also paid to Plautus' audience and to the visual elements in his plays. The result is a reappraisal that will challenge many received views of Plautus, positioning him as a poet writing in the Hellenistic tradition for a knowledgeable and sophisticated audience. All quotations from Latin, Greek, and other foreign languages are translated. Extensive indices, including a "pundex," facilitate ease of reference among the many jokes and plays on words discussed in the text.

The Correspondence of Marcus Cornelius Fronto with Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, Lucius Verus, Antoninus Pius, and Various Friends

The literary remains of the rhetorician Marcus Cornelius Fronto first came to light in 1815, when Cardinal Mai, then prefect of the Ambrosian Library in Milan, discovered that beneath an account of the Acts of the first Council of Chelcedon in 451 had originally been written copy of the correspondence between Fronto and members of the imperial family, including no less than three who were to wear the purple. The letters possess an extraordinary fascination as giving an authentic record of the relationship between the foremost teacher of his time and his illustrious student Marcus Aurelius, his chief correspondent. Apart from small-talk (but even that is replete with interest) the principal subject is Latin prose style. Fronto practices to excess the cultivation of trendy mannerisms, but sees clearly enough the sterility of a slavish imitation of classical models. -- Jacket.
