  • Latin Epistolography (Cicero, Pliny)

    The personal correspondences of Cicero and of Pliny the Younger offer insight into the social and political workings of Rome in two critical periods: the final decades of the Republic and the decades just before the Empire reached its greatest extent. Selections from Cicero, composed for a private audience, expose the statesman's inner hopes and anxieties regarding his family, his friends, and his state. Selections from Pliny, self-consciously published by the author himself, not only recount exciting moments in Roman history (such as the early persecution of Christians and Vesuvius' eruption), but also play with the very genre of epistolography.
