Fiction

Above all, Plutarch was a superb dramatic artist and a brilliant popularize, a writer who has influenced Shakespeare and many others with his vivid studies of the great Greek and Roman leaders. Plutarch's interest is not in historical analysis but rather in character, in the influences of birth and education, in the significance of individual fame and the moral issue this raises. Born in Boeotia in AD 46, he witnessed both the best and the worst aspects of Roman life during the first century AD - the burgeoning of Latin literature, but also the long and bloody foreign and civil wars that marked the collapse of the Republic and ushered in the Empire. Collected here are his lives of the six men who played a central part in those events: Marius and Sulla, Crassus and Cicero, Pompey and Caesar.
