Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on Feb. 25 1999
Format: Hardcover
Cicero's Phillipcs are packed with arrogance and lengthy praising of himself; this feature is extremely entertaining especially in Phillipic II. The argument against Antony is also of great historical interest in this book. The Loeb edition is extremely useful for students of Latin but also for the general reader. Its 'two-sided' approach (Latin/English Translation) is legendary and works extremely effectively. This edition also contains wonderfully helpful notes and appendices for true historical context.

Format: Hardcover
I felt I had to buy the book since Cicero finally took a stand for the principles expressed in his philosophical works and Marcus Antonius killed him in one of the purges.
