Most popular of Plutarch's writings have always been the 46 Parallel Lives, biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs (in each pair, one Greek figure and one similar Roman). The irresistably humane Lives give not merely a record of careers and illustrious deeds but rounded portraits of statesmen, orators, and military leaders. For, Plutarch says: "It is not Histories I am writing, but Lives"; the virtues (or vices) and character of his subjects is what he seeks "and by means of these to portray the life of each."
