Book Details

Author  L.D. August

Publication Date   August 20, 2012
Pages  102


Neither a translation, nor a commentary, nor in any way respectful towards our great classical heritage, this is an irreverent, to-the-point, explanatory-note-free summary of the Divinatio Against Caecilius and the six speeches against Verres that aims to capture the spirit rather than the letter of Cicero’s elegant, pungent, bombastic, witty and frequently sarcastic oratory. He probably wouldn’t have approved. But who knows? and does it matter anyway?
