Comedy in the Pro Caelio (PB)by Katherine A. Geffcken
Reprint of the 1973 E. J. Brill edition, with an appendix on the In Clodium et Curionem Cicero applies characterization and dramatic patterns borrowed from comedy in his defense of M. Caelius Rufus. He successfully shifts the attention from his client's possible guilt to persons linked with the prosecution, in the process entertaining the court and audience with witty, brilliant caricaturs.
