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

11 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,809 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( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1,471 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

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The rise and fall of Athens : nine Greek lives : Theseus, Solon, Themistocles, Aristides, Cimon, Pericles, Nicias, Alcibiades, Lysander by Plutarch( Book )

3 editions published between 1960 and 1969 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine Greek biographies illustrate the rise and fall of Athens, from Theseus through Solon, Themistocles, Aristides, Cimon, Pericles, Nicias, and Alcibiades, to the razing of its walls by Lysander. The nine lives follow Athen's history from the legendary times of Theseus, the city's founder, to its defeat at the hands of Lysander, its Spartan conqueror. Included are the biographies of Themistocles, a brilliant but heavy-handed naval commander, Aristedes 'the Just' and Pericles, who was responsible for the buildings on the Acropolis. Plutarch's real interest in these men is not in the greatness of their victories or achievemenets but in their moral strengths, and for him the responsibility for the eventual fall of Athens lay with the weakness and ambition of its great men

Plutarch's Life of Alcibiades : story, text and moralism by Simon Verdegem( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the second century C.E., Plutarch of Chaeronea wrote a series of pairs of biographies of Greek and Roman statesmen. Their purpose is moral: the reader is invited to reflect on important ethical issues and to use the example of these great men from the past to improve his or her own conduct. This book off ers the first full-scale commentary on the Life of Alcibiades. It examines how Plutarch's biography of one of classical Athens' most controversial politicians functions within the moral program of the Parallel Lives. Built upon the narratological distinction between story and text, Simon Verdegem's analysis, which involves detailed comparisons with other Plutarchan works (especially the Lives of Nicias and Lysander) and several key texts in the Alcibiades tradition (e.g., Plato, Thucydides, and Xenophon), demonstrates how Plutarch carefully constructed his story and used a wide range of narrative techniques to create a complex Life that raises interesting questions about the relation between private morality and the common good
Cleopatra by Joseph L Mankiewicz( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The epic saga of legendary Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, and her attempt to stabilize her power and gain control of the Roman Empire. When Caesar visits Egypt, Cleopatra gains control by ousting her brother with his help. She marries Caesar, and bears him the son fate had previously denied him. Joining him in Rome--to ensure that the boy takes his rightful place after his father--her plans are thwarted when Caesar is assassinated and she must flee. Years later Marc Antony, proconsul of the eastern half of the empire, seeks an alliance with Egypt to impede Octavian's quest to become Emperor. Cleopatra and Antony become lovers and form a military alliance, but are forced to retreat after losing a major naval battle at Actium. Avoiding capture and disgrace, they take their own lives
