This edition contains the Latin text of most of the surviving parts of Cicero's most elaborate philosophical dialogue, De re publica, together with a full commentary explaining the philosophical and historical argument, and elucidating the grammar and style. De re publica is a major document in the history of European political theory, and a masterpiece of Ciceronian style. This is the fullest commentary ever to appear in English.
Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics: Cicero: De re publica: Selections Paperback edition by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Cicero (106-43 BC) was the greatest orator of the ancient world and a leading politician of the closing era of the Roman republic. This book presents nine speeches which reflect the development, variety, and drama of his political career. These new translations achieve new standards of accuracy.
Worried that old age will inevitably mean losing your libido, your health, and possibly your marbles too? Well, Cicero has some good news for you. In How to Grow Old, the great Roman orator and statesman eloquently describes how you can make the second half of life the best part of all?and why you might discover that reading and gardening are actually far more pleasurable than sex ever was....
New edition of and detailed commentary on what is perhaps Cicero's best-loved speech. Offers advanced undergraduates and graduate students a detailed analysis of Cicero's rhetorical strategies and stylistic refinements and presents a systematic account of the background and significance of the speech, including in-depth explanations of Roman court proceedings.
All of us are faced countless times with the challenge of persuading others, whether we're trying to win a trivial argument with a friend or convince our coworkers about an important decision. Instead of relying on untrained instinct?and often floundering or failing as a result?we'd win more arguments if we learned the timeless art of verbal persuasion, rhetoric.

The "Rhetorica ad Herrenium" was traditionally attributed to Cicero (106 43 BCE), and reflects, as does Cicero s "De Inventione," Hellenistic rhetorical teaching. But most recent editors attribute it to an unknown author.
Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest, in part because he provides vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first century Rome. This edition uses the 1997 Clarendon text by the acclaimed translator P.G. Walsh.
On Obligations was written by Cicero after the murder of Julius Caesar to provide principles of behaviour for aspiring politicians. Though written for first-century Romans it has been adopted as a guide to political conduct in every major era in the West: by the early Christians, in the high Middle Ages, in the Renaissance, and in the age of the Enlightenment.
The first detailed single-volume commentary in any language on the final book of Virgil's epic masterpiece, with an introduction discussing larger issues and situating the poem in its historical context. An invaluable resource for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students and with much of interest to scholars as well.
In letters to his dear friend Atticus, Cicero reveals himself as to no other, except perhaps his brother. These letters, in a four-volume series, provide a vivid picture of a momentous period in Roman history--years marked by the rise of Julius Caesar and the downfall of the Republic.
Provides a varied selection from the attractive corpus of Greek lyric, including well-known as well as some lesser studied poems. The original Greek text is accompanied by a commentary and a detailed introduction. The volume will be of interest to advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as to scholars.
