Description

Cicero’s first major triumph was the prosecution of Caius Verres for misgovernment in Sicily. This speech was given in the second part of the trial and shows the development of Cicero’s rhetoric. This edition communicates the literary flavour of the original and discusses the historical and political background to the trial, with examination of noteworthy textual cruces and problems of interpretation. [Latin text with facing-page English translation, introduction and commentary.]

T. N. Mitchell was formerly Professor of Latin and Provost of Trinity College Dublin.
