Cicero on oratory and orators by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )
32 editions published between 1855 and 1986 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contains Cicero{u2019}s De Oratore and Brutus, influential sources over the centuries for ideas on rhetoric and train{u00AD}ing for public leadership. The De Oratore, written in 55 B.C., argues that rhetoric is socially significant because states are established and main{u00AD}tained through the leadership of eloquent men. The three books of dialogues in this volume feature discussions between well-known figures in Roman history, in{u00AD}cluding Lucius Crassus, Marcus An{u00AD}tonius, Quintus Lutatius Catulus, Quin{u00AD}tus Marcius Scaevola, Caius Aurelius Cotta, Julius Caesar Strabo Vopicus, and Publius Sulpicus Rufus. The Brutus continues the theme of the dialogues, giving a history of eminent orators whose performances exemplify the Ciceronian theory that rhetoric final{u00AD}ly adds up to leadership
