Item description for Cicero, "Philippics" 3-9: Introduction, Translation, and Commentary (Texte Und Kommentare: Eine Altertumswissenschaftliche Reihe) by Gesine Manuwald...
The Philippics form the climax of Cicero's rhetorical achievement and political activity. Besides, these fourteen speeches are an important testimony to the critical final phase of the Roman Republic. Yet for a long time they have received little scholarly attention. This two-volume edition now provides a comprehensive scholarly commentary on Philippics 3-9, seven central speeches of the corpus. Full annotations explain the speeches in terms of linguistic, literary and historical issues (vol. 2); they are based on a revised Latin text with a facing translation into English as well as a detailed introduction dealing with problems relevant to the whole corpus; a bibliography and indices complete the edition (vol. 1). Besides a running commentary on each speech, the study shows these orations to be rhetorical constructs in a historical conflict; hence particular emphasis is placed on an analysis of Cicero's rhetorical techniques and political strategies. The format of the commentary is also intended to present scholarly information to a wide and diverse readership.
