Roman lives : a selection of eight Roman lives by Plutarch( )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the eight lives of this collection Plutarch introduces the reader to the major figures of classical Rome. 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 storyteller's ear for a good anecdote."--Jacket

Greek lives : a selection of nine Greek lives by Plutarch( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plutarch's biographies of eminent Greeks and Romans are renowned not just for their historical importance but also for their insights into the personalities they describe. In prose that is rich, elegant, and sprinkled with learned references, Plutarch explores with an extraordinary degree of insight the interplay of character and political action. He portrays virtues to be emulated and vices to be avoided, but his purpose is implicitly to warn and educate those in his own day who wielded power. Plutarch brought to biography not only a clear moral objective, but also a natural storyteller's ear for a good anecdote. Influential in their own day, the Lives were drawn on by later historians and writers, including Shakespeare." "This selection of nine Lives, chosen for their range and interest, offers a new translation as well as a lucid introduction and helpful notes and indexes."--Jacket

The age of Caesar : five Roman lives by Plutarch( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An outstanding new edition of Plutarch, the inventor of biography, focused on five lives that remade the Roman world. Pompey, Caesar, Cicero, Brutus, Antony: the names still resonate across thousands of years. Major figures in the civil wars that brutally ended the Roman republic, they haunt us with questions of character and authority: how to safeguard a republic from the flaws of its leaders. Plutarch's rich, vivid profiles show character shaping history through grand scale events and intimate details. The creator and master of the biographical form, Plutarch brilliantly locates character in small gestures such as the selfless Brutus's punctilious use of money, or Caesar's embrace of the plainspoken discourse of the soldier rather than the eloquence of Cicero. This is a true reader's edition of Plutarch. The translation lends a straightforward clarity to Plutarch's prose, and the notes helpfully identify people, places, and events named in the text. The substantial introduction and foreword explore both Plutarch himself as a historical figure and the basic history of the republic's fall."--Provided by publisher

The lives of the noble Grecians and Romans by Plutarch( Book )

4 editions published between 1952 and 1992 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter Plutarch's Lives, written at the beginning of the second century A.D., is a brilliant social history of the ancient world by one of the greatest biographers and moralists of all time. In what is by far his most famous and influential work, Plutarch reveals the character and personality of his subjects and how they led ultimately to tragedy or victory. Richly anecdotal and full of detail, Volume I contains profiles and comparisons of Romulus and Theseus, Numa and Lycurgus, Fabius and Pericles, and many more powerful figures of ancient Greece and Rome. The present translation, originally published in 1683 in conjunction with a life of Plutarch by John Dryden, was revised in 1864 by the poet and scholar Arthur Hugh Clough, whose notes and preface are also included in this edition. -- Publisher description
Lives from Plutarch. The modern American ed. of twelve lives by Plutarch( Book )

9 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plutarch was born in Greece about 45 A.D. - a few years after the death of Jesus and several centuries after the political power of ancient Greece had collapsed. Greece had become a province of Rome. Neverthless Greek thought, absorbed and projected by Roman genius for organization, dominated the Mediterranean world; it followed the Roman legions as they spread over Europe and established the foundations of our western world. The most renowned of biographers writes about: Lycurgus, Aristides, Cimon, Pericles, Alcibiades, Alexander, Coriolanus, Marcus Cato, The Gracchi, Cicero, Caesar and Antony
