Overview

Gotoff's commentary combines subtle analysis of language with vigorous historical and political discussion. It will appeal greatly to readers at every level of experience.--Holly W. Montague, Amherst College

"A fine analysis of the prose stylistics of Cicero's three Caesarian speeches in which the dynamics of both sentence structure and the orator's rhetorical strategies are admirably developed. Everyone from advanced undergraduate to advanced scholar will benefit from this commentary.--T. James Luce, Jr., Princeton University

This is a detailed analysis of three speeches that Cicero delivered before Julius Caesar on behalf of the Romans who, like himself, had opposed Caesar in the recent civil war. Gotoff's commentary, which includes new texts for each of the speeches, identifies the techniques Cicero used and examines his psychology of persuasion.

Originally published in 1993.
