Cicero's Orations

by Marcus Tullius Cicero

9 ratings, 3 reviews

Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC), aka, "Tully,” was a famed Roman statesman, lawyer, humanist, and one of the greatest orators of all time. If Julius Caesar calls to mind Roman military power, then Cicero is the symbol of Roman law and justice. His orations and letters are some of the best remnants of Roman history, and Cicero's style has been studied and modeled for millennia. Of the hundred or so speeches he wrote, only Fifty-eight still exist, and some of them are incomplete. Not all of his orations were delivered, as sometimes the occasion for which he wrote did not occur.
The Orations of Cicero is a collection of famous addresses called the Philippicae, or the Philippics. They consist of 14 speeches that Cicero gave which condemned Mark Anthony, who was preparing to take the place of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. Cicero hated Julius Caesar, and was happy when he was murdered: his bitter vituperation for his Antony is here in spades. The Phillippicae are the following:

TREATISE ON RHETORICAL INVENTION, Books I and II
THE ORATOR
TREATISE on TOPICS
A DIALOGUE CONCERNING ORATORICAL PARTITIONS
TREATISE ON THE BEST STYLE OF ORATORS.
