H̀owever one defines Man, the same definition applies to us all. This is sufficient proof that there is no essential difference within mankind.' (Laws l.29-30) Cicero's The Republic is an impassioned plea for responsible governement written just before the civil war that ended the Roman Republic in a dialogue following Plato. Drawing on Greek political theory, the work embodies the mature reflections of a Roman ex-consul on the nature of political organization, on justice in society, and on the qualities needed in a statesman.

Author and audience in Latin literature( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between an author and his audience has received much critical attention from scholars in non-classical disciplines in recent years, yet the nature of much ancient literature and of its 'publication' meant that audiences in ancient times were more immediate to their authors than in the modern world. This book contains essays by distinguished scholars on the various means by which Latin authors communicated effectively with their audiences. The authors and works covered are Cicero (as both orator and letter-writer), Catullus, Lucretius, Propertius, Horace's Odes, Virgil's Aeneid, Ovid's Metamorphoses, Senecan tragedy, Persius, Pliny's letters, Tacitus' Annals and medieval love lyric. Contributors have provided detailed analyses of particular passages in order to throw light on the many different ways in which authors catered for their audiences by fulfilling, manipulating and thwarting their expectations; and in an epilogue the editors have drawn together the issues raised by these contributions and have attempted to place them in an appropriate critical context." "Author and audience in Latin literature is a sequel to the influential series of essay-collections edited by Tony Woodman and David West and published by Cambridge University Press: Quality and pleasure in Latin poetry (1974), Creative imitation and Latin literature (1979) and Poetry and politics in the age of Augustus (1984)."--Jacket

Matters of text, language, and content are all considered equally in the commentary

René Lévesque et Pierre Elliott Trudeau, deux des politiciens les plus marquants de l'histoire du Canada, sont au coeur de cette série. À l'aide de photos exceptionnelles, de séquences d'actualités filmées et d'entrevues avec de proches collègues, le film déroule la toile de fond de la lutte opposant les deux hommes et leur idéologie et, ce faisant, aide à faire la lumière sur l'une des grandes crises de l'histoire canadienne. Les Champions : surprenantes destinées présente les premières années, depuis la période universitaire au début des années 1950 jusqu'à 1967, annéee où Lévesque quitte le Parti libéral et où Trudeau devient ministre fédéral de laJustice. Les champions : la façade du pouvoir s'attache aux années 1967 à 1977, une décennie marquée par trois victoires électorales de Trudeau, la crise d'Octobre et l'ascension au pouvoir du Parti québécois. Les champions : le dernier combat couvre la période de 1976 à 1986 et met au jour les rudes tractations menées dans le cadre du premier référendum du Québec et du rapatriement de la Constitution. Parallèlement, l'épisode retrace les circonstances ayant mené à la retraite de la vie politique de chacun des deux hommes et fait ressortir des points tournants de l'histoire récente du pays."--Conteneur
