Overview

Ce volume contient soixante-trois lettres ecrites ou recues par Ciceron durant les huit mois (aout 44 - avril 43) au cours desquels il a lance contre Antoine ses virulentes Philippiques; a la fois complement et contrepoint des discours publies, la Correspondance nous montre sur le vif le sexagenaire reussissant par son acharnement a galvaniser l'energie vacillante des senateurs - comme il l'avait fait vingt ans plus tot contre Catilina -jusqu'a la victoire sanglante des forces senatoriales devant Modene, mais au prix d'une alliance scabreuse avec l'autre heritier de Cesar, l'ambitieux Octave, qui parvient a endormir sa mefiance en exploitant habilement sa haine contre leur adversaire commun. Le texte, etabli apres relecture des principaux manuscrits, presente des divergences assez nombreuses avec les editions recentes de Shackleton Bailey et de Watt, soit par elimination de corrections jugees inutiles, soit par des choix differents entre les variantes, soit meme par des conjectures originales. Cinq notices detaillees, situant les messages a leur moment historique, precisent leur sens et degagent leur portee; des notes complementaires eclairent et, le cas echeant, justifient la traduction, entierement neuve.Jean Beaujeu, ancien professeur a la Sorbonne, a deja publie aux Belles Lettres dans la collection des Universites de France la traduction de la correspondance de Ciceron des annees 46, 45 et 44 (Tomes VII, VIII et IX) la traduction de l'Octavius de Minucius Felix et le livre Il (Cosmogonie) de l'Histoire Naturelle de Pline l'Ancien.
