Cicero by Anthony Everitt: | mobodemonve.tk: Books
A good biography of a man referenced a great deal in books I have read, but one I had never specifically read about. Cicero lived during the the famous years of the fall of the Roman Republic, and was Anthony Everitt.
He advised the legendary Pompey on his somewhat botched transition from military hero to politician. No man has loomed larger in the political history of mankind. In this dynamic and engaging biography, Anthony Everitt plunges us into the fascinating, scandal-ridden world of ancient Rome in its most glorious heyday.

Customers who bought this item also bought. Everitt combines a classical education with practical expertise. He writes fluidly.
The way Everitt carefully and comprehensively unfolded the drama brought back the excitement of ancient history superbly. We know so much about him, thanks to the happy chance which has seen so much of his correspondence preserved, that it is possible to write the sort of biography of Cicero that one might write about someone from, say, the nineteenth century. Anthony Everitt has done just that, sympathetically and very well.
This is an engrossing book, written lucidly for the general reader. Cicero mastered the essence of politics.
Cicero: The Life And Times Of Rome's Greatest Politician
He preached the difference between authority and power. He was an orator who wrote poetry, a politician who read history, ruthless yet able to articulate the demands of clemency, democracy and the rights of free men under law. If good government is rooted in history and history in biography, Cicero is the man of the hour.
But the great majority of his contemporaries—and of course posterity itself—were much kinder to Cicero, and this engrossing new biography by Anthony Everitt does a superb job of explaining why.
He has a sophisticated conception of character, too, including a willingness—so crucial in biographers—to embrace contradictions. Anthony Everitt's Cicero emerges as the epitome of that time, in all its passions and contradictions. In lucid, fast-moving prose, Everitt deftly depicts the whole man--the brilliant orator and loving father, anguished politician and lousy poet, man of letters and inveterate self-stylist. Everitt's eye for the telling detail and his superb grasp of the ancient sources bring new life to the single most complex personality of a fascinating and violent age.
