This edition is the first since J. D. Denniston's of 1926 to present the Latin text and commentary on the First and Second Philippics, two of Cicero's most polished orations, composed less than six months after the murder of Julius Caesar in March 44 B.C. This period--roughly 63-44 B.C.--is important because the Roman state was in transition from Republic to Empire. The Second Philippic not only presents Cicero's assessment of his own political career and his place in Roman history from a perspective late in his life, but it also provides a vivid eyewitness account of how Julius Caesar, with the help of Mark Antony, made himself master of Rome.First edition since 1926 to present the Latin text and full commentary on two of Cicero's most polished and interesting speechesWide-ranging and thorough commentary, covering points of style and grammar, as well as historical matterCommentary provides an important reassessment of the relationship between the general and dictator Julius Caesar and his lieutenant Mark Antony
