Omschrijving

Following the Civil War, and with renewed hopes for the restoration of the Roman Republic, Cicero launched a fierce attack on Mark Antony by delivering a series of speeches that cannot be matched for their vigour. It was these speeches that would be the cause of Cicero's death. This book tells his story.

‘The picture of the cut and thrust of Roman politics is as beguiling as the man, and Tempest does an admirable job in bringing the orator's orator to life.'

Author Kathryn Tempest took part in a live one-hour special on Cicero, on the Irish radio 'Newstalk' http://www.newstalk.ie/2011/programmes/all-programmes/talking-history/cicero-sunday-october-2nd/

By the end of the book, readers will appreciate the complexity not only of Cicero's character, but also of the extraordinary shift from republic to empire. Recommended.

A very useful guide to the frequently convoluted and often murderous politics of the late Republic. … This is a good read for both those familiar with the period or for those seeking an introduction to Roman political life in final era of the Republic.

Dr Kathryn Tempest is senior lecturer in Latin literature and Roman history at Roehampton University. Her research interests focus on ancient oratory especially Cicero and the Attic orators.
