    How can you rate a book composing of all written and said works of one of the greatest orator this planet has ever seen? I give this book five stars with clear concience. And I even haven't read everything, only the parts that interested me the most. There are hundreds of letters just to Cicero's friend Atticus and half of them are just about buying real estates and art works, so not exactly a thrilling read. Then there are transcripts of his lawsuit cases and his own philosophical books. Each s How can you rate a book composing of all written and said works of one of the greatest orator this planet has ever seen? I give this book five stars with clear concience. And I even haven't read everything, only the parts that interested me the most. There are hundreds of letters just to Cicero's friend Atticus and half of them are just about buying real estates and art works, so not exactly a thrilling read. Then there are transcripts of his lawsuit cases and his own philosophical books. Each section has hundreds of pages at least. This book is half English (apart from small grammatical errrors, it's fine) and half Latin - for those that would like to read the exact words this Titan spoke. Unfortunatelly I don't speak Latin, but who knows, maybe one day. Other than that I can only say how privileged I felt while reading this as I am a hardcore fan of Cicero. If you'd like to read what he had to about past Roman political affairs and his personal struggles, virtues and vices this is a book for you.

    His speeches are long (makes sense) but fascinating. It helps to understand the political climate as well. Cicero was not a powerful man, except for his strength of oration. So each speech is a small man among the more powerful and dangerous elements of Rome. I find I enjoy examining his word choices; strong and precise at times, alliteration and repetition used at times. He carefully words and builds a foundation to the inevitable accusation or defense. By the end of the speech he has made a log His speeches are long (makes sense) but fascinating. It helps to understand the political climate as well. Cicero was not a powerful man, except for his strength of oration. So each speech is a small man among the more powerful and dangerous elements of Rome. I find I enjoy examining his word choices; strong and precise at times, alliteration and repetition used at times. He carefully words and builds a foundation to the inevitable accusation or defense. By the end of the speech he has made a logical progression, used certain words for penetrating power, and rhythm/repetition to drive in point. All along the way he plays his arguments for the crowd. Ie. Everyone in the crowd had slaves, so he adds to his argument to continue would be to destroy slave conventions. Or it would be an attack on nobility. Or an attack on inheritance. Etc. He frames the argument to touch on things the audience cares about deeply.

    Needs editorial work The selection is comprehensive, and translations good. But the Latin is practically unusable, because Cicero uses Greek words and phrases abundantly - in his letters, sometimes every sentence. And the Greek has been left as complete gibberish. Disappointing. I hope someone at Delphi goes through and fixes this for a future edition.
