Overview

Cicero’s greatest speeches.

Cicero was the most brilliant orator in Classical history, with the ability to sway the opinions of the mob and the most powerful men in Rome. This new selection of speeches illustrates Cicero’s fierce loyalty to the Roman Republic, giving an overview of his oratory-from early victories in the law courts to the height of his political career in the Senate. It features the Philippics-considered Cicero’s finest achievement-a directive against his rival, Mark Antony, that eventually led to Cicero’s death.
