Review: The Verrine Orations 1: Against Caecilus. Against Verres, Parts 1-2; Books 1-2

User Review  - John Cairns - Goodreads

I like writing depicting the writer in action and all the incidental information given of the time he lived in but also that Cicero isn't going to waste what he prepared simply because Verres fled and it was never given. Some was but he'd've 'improved' it all for reading anyway. Read full review

Review: Letters to Atticus vol. 1

User Review  - Dimitris Lioutas - Goodreads

A superb translation from a much better classicist. One of the best editions of Cicero's epistolography out there, covering one of the most agitaded periods of roman history. Recommended as an excellent source for Roman history scholars. Read full review
