Ian Scott-Kilvert's and Christopher Pelling's translations are accompanied by a new introduction, and also includes a separate introduction for each biography, comparative essays of the major figures, suggested further reading, notes and maps."Article| Plutarch| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Makers of Rome
☯ Full Synopsis : "These nine biographies illuminate the careers, personalities and military campaigns of some of Rome's greatest statesmen, whose lives span the earliest days of the Republic to the establishment of the Empire. Selected from Plutarch's Roman Lives, they include prominent figures who achieved fame for their pivotal roles in Roman history, such as soldierly Marcellus, eloquent Cato and cautious Fabius. Here too are vivid portraits of ambitious, hot-tempered Coriolanus; objective, principled Brutus and open-hearted Mark Anthony, who would later be brought to life by Shakespeare. In recounting the lives of these great leaders, Plutarch also explores the problems of statecraft and power and illustrates the Roman people's genius for political compromise, which led to their mastery of the ancient world."Article| Plutarch| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Age of Alexander
☯ Full Synopsis : "Plutarch's parallel biographies of the great men in Greek and Roman history are cornerstones of European literature, drawn on by writers and statesmen since the Renaissance, most notably by Shakespeare. This selection provides intimate glimpses into the lives of these men, depicting, as he put it, 'those actions which illuminate the workings of the soul'. We learn why the mild Artaxerxes forced the killer of his usurping brother to undergo the horrific 'death of two boats'; why the noble Dion repeatedly risked his life for the ungrateful mobs of Syracuse; why Demosthenes delivered a funeral oration for the soldiers he had deserted in battle; and why Alexander, the most enigmatic of tyrants, self-destructed after conquering half the world."Article| Plutarch| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : My Nine Lives
☯ Full Synopsis : "My Nine Lives is the colorful life story of Roy Sannella-a survivor of the second attack on Pearl Harbor, several natural disasters, encounters with gangsters, and other escapades that arose during his forty-seven moves around the world. Nicknamed "Scarface" and "Capone" by grade-school classmates after he injured his right cheek as a child, author Roy Sannella shares his around-the-world adventures in vivid detail-from carrying bodies out of the ruins of Boston's Coconut Grove fire in 1942 and experiencing the violent escapades of the Huks in the Philippines, as told to him by the American Ambassador, to surviving an arrest by the Moroccan police and recruiting Louie Armstrong to play one memorable morning in his nightclub. Sannella has many treasured personal memories of his encounters with hundreds of renowned celebrities and politicians, including Frank Sinatra, Omar Sharif, Sammy Davis Jr., Pope Pius XII, Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly. My Nine Lives is packed with exciting and vivid true stories. Sannella's memoirs prove that with a daring spirit, one can create a life full of unforgettable adventure."Article| Roy Sannella| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Cicero
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book presents Cicero's natural law theory, including valuable definitions of the state, the ideal state, the ideal ruler, and the laws for the ideal state. Explanations are offered of the Greek sources of Cicero's republican philosophy, his influence on the Principate of Augustus, and his role in the development of modern political philosophy. As all the ages of the world have not produced a greater statesman and philosopher united than Cicero, his authority should have great weight (John Adams, 1787)."Article| Robert T.

♥ Book Title : Greek Lives
☯ Full Synopsis : "Lycurgus, Pericles, Solon, Nicias, Themistocles, Alcibiades, Cimon, Agesilaus, Alexander `I treat the narrative of the Lives as a kind of mirror...The experience is like nothing so much as spending time in their company and living with them: I receive and welcome each of them in turn as my guest.' In the nine lives of this collection Plutarch introduces the reader to the major figures and periods of classical Greece. He portrays virtues to be emulated and vices to be avoided, but his purpose is also implicitly to educate and warn those in his own day who wielded power. In prose that is rich, elegant and sprinkled with learned references, he explores with an extraordinary degree of insight the interplay of character and political action. While drawing chiefly on historical sources, he brings to biography a natural story-teller's ear for a good anecdote. Throughout the ages Plutarch's Lives have been valued for their historical value and their charm. This new translation will introduce new generations to his urbane erudition. The most comprehensive selection available, it is accompanied by a lucid introduction, explanatory notes, bibliographies, maps and indexes. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more."Article| Plutarch| Statement ..."
