Cicero on oratory and orators by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

Contains Cicero'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
Catilinarians by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

57 editions published between 1871 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As consul in 63 BC Cicero faced a conspiracy to overthrow the Roman state launched by the frustrated consular candidate Lucius Sergius Catilina. Cicero's handling of this crisis would shape foreverafter the way he defined himself and his statesmanship. The four speeches he delivered during the crisis show him at the height of his oratorical powers and political influence. Divided between deliberative speeches given in the senate (1 and 4) and informational speeches delivered before the general public (2 and 3), the Catilinarians illustrate Cicero's adroit handling of several distinct types of rhetoric. Beginning in antiquity, this corpus served as a basic text for generations of students but fell into neglect during the past half-century. This edition, which is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduates and graduate students, takes account of recently discovered papyrus evidence, recent studies of Cicero's language, style and rhetorical techniques, and the relevant historical background." --Information from publisher
