Cicero, Greek learning, and the making of a Roman classic
Cicero, Marcus Tullius
Oxford University Press 2018 First edition.EISBN 9780191867941
The Roman statesman, orator, and author Marcus Tullius Cicero is the embodiment of a classic, though only in part due to his subsequent reception. This volume demonstrates how Cicero's strategic adaptation of classic Greek texts allowed him to envision and create texts with classical authority for a parallel Roman canon.
