Pro Marco Caelio is perhaps Cicero's best-loved speech and has long been regarded as one of the best surviving examples of Roman oratory. Speaking in defence of the young aristocrat Marcus Caelius Rufus on charges of political violence, Cicero scores his points with wit but also with searing invective directed at a supporter of the prosecution, Clodia Metelli, whom he represents as seeking vengeance as a lover spurned by his client. This new edition and detailed commentary offers advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as scholars, a detailed analysis of Cicero's rhetorical strategies and stylistic refinements and presents a systematic account of the background and significance of the speech, including in-depth explanations of Roman court proceedings.

Allusion and Intertext

The study of the deliberate allusion by one author to the words of a previous author has long been central to Latin philology. However, literary Romanists have been diffident about situating such work within the more spacious inquiries into intertextuality now current. This 1998 book represents an attempt to find (or recover) some space for the study of allusion - as a project of continuing vitality - within an excitingly enlarged universe of intertexts. It combines traditional classical approaches with modern literary-theoretical ways of thinking, and offers attentive close readings, innovative perspectives on literary history, and theoretical sophistication of argument. Like other volumes in the series it is among the most broadly conceived short books on Roman literature to be published in recent years.

In his Bellum Catilinae, C. Sallustius Crispus or Sallust (86-35/34 B.C.E.) recounts the dramatic events of the year 63 B.C.E. when a disgruntled and impoverished nobleman, L. Sergius Catilina, after two electoral defeats, made himself the leader of a group of heavily indebted young aristocrats and the Roman poor and tried to kill his rival Cicero and overthrow the government. With his trademark archaizing style, Sallust skillfully captures the drama of the times, including an early morning raid and the emotionally charged debate in which Caesar and Cato the Younger fight over the lives of the arrested conspirators. Sallust wrote while the Roman Republic was being transformed into an empire during in the turbulent first century BCE. The work is well-suited for second-year or advanced Latin study and gives a fair idea of the richness of Latin literature while also pointing the way to a critical investigation of late-Republican government and historiography. Ramsey's introduction and commentary bring the text to life for Latin students. This new edition includes two maps and two city plans, an updated and now annotated bibliography, a list of divergences from the 1991 Oxford Classical Text of Sallust, and minor revisions in the commentary.

English summary: This book uses modern methods of adult education in the field of historical linguistics. It presents a variety of tasks, easy-to-understand exercises and work instructions as well as clear tables and precise descriptions of the development of the Attic language. Step by step the user is introduced deeper into the complicated developments of the Attic language. By applying the structures of language development over and over again the user learns the matter by doing it. The exercises, in which Attics word are deduced from their Indo-European pre-forms, are structured as puzzles that must be solved. The single-step method allows the user to analyze each derivation step exactly as a number always refers to an index of all the Greek sound laws which can be found at the end of the book. In each teaching unit the left page contains the explanations and descriptions of Latin sound laws and the right page offers exercises to train the learning matter. Sound laws, which are explained in other units, are additionally given on the exercise pages. Answers to all the exercises are included in the book. The comprehensive index includes all Greek sound laws and is referred to in every step of a phonological derivation as well as in all the explanations. The index can be used for reference as well. The structure of the book is intentionally identical to the "Latin Historical Phonology Workbook" which is also published in the Reichert Verlag. In this way, not only the parallelism of many developments can be compared with each other at first glance but the user can start working with the book directly without having to deal with any new types of tasks. The book is suitable for use in university courses but can easily be used for self-study as well based on the existing solutions in the book. The language is plain, intelligible and presents complex developments in a simple way so that non-specialists can work with the book. Previous knowledge of Greek is not needed due to the introduction in which the Greek alphabet, the basics of phonology and a theoretical model of language development are presented. German description: Dieses Buch setzt moderne Methoden der Erwachsenenbildung im Bereich der historischen Sprachforschung einzusetzen. Mit einer Vielzahl von Aufgaben, verstandlich gestalteten Ubungen und Arbeitsanweisungen, ubersichtlichen Tabellen und prazisen Beschreibungen bildet der Benutzer die Entwicklung einer der wichtigsten Sprachen der abendlandischen Kultur nach. Schritt fur Schritt wird der Benutzer tiefer in die zum Teil komplizierten Entwicklungen des Attischen eingefuhrt. Durch wiederholtes eigenes Anwenden schleifen sich die Strukturen der Sprachentwicklung quasi spielerisch bei den Benutzern ein. Die Ubungen sind dabei wie Ratsel aufgebaut, die es zu losen gilt. Dabei muss stets die Ableitung eines attischen Wortes vom Urindogermanischen her geleistet werden. Die verwendete Einzelschrittmethode erlaubt es dem Benutzer, jeden Ableitungsschritt genau nachzuvollziehen, da stets eine Nummer auf einen Index aller griechischen Lautgesetze verweist. Die Kapitel bestehen aus einer linken Erklarungsseite, auf der in kurzen Abschnitten der Lehrstoff besprochen wird, und einer rechten Ubungsseite, um die besprochenen phonologischen Prozesse anzuwenden. Lautwandelprozesse, die nicht unmittelbar im Kapitel besprochen werden, sind erganzend auf den Ubungsseiten angegeben. Die Losungen der Ubungen sind ebenfalls im Buch enthalten. Der umfangreiche Index griechischer Lautgesetze kann ebenfalls zum Nachschlagen genutzt werden. Der Aufbau des Buches ist absichtlich vollig identisch mit dem Buch "Arbeitsbuch zu lateinischen historischen Phonologie", das ebenfalls im Reichert Verlag erschienen ist. Auf diese Weise lasst sich nicht nur die Parallelitat vieler Entwicklungen auf den ersten Blick miteinander vergleichen, sondern der Benutzer kann direkt an die Arbeit gehen, ohne sich lang mit neuen Aufgabentypen auseinandersetzen zu mussen. Das Buch eignet sich nicht nur zum Einsatz in Universitatskursen, sondern kann aufgrund der im Buch vorhandenen Losungen problemlos zum Selbststudium genutzt werden. Die Sprache ist klar und verstandlich geschrieben und stellt komplexe Entwicklungen auf einfache Weise dar, damit auch fachfremde Personen mit dem Buch arbeiten konnen. Es werden keine Kenntnisse vorausgesetzt, da zu Beginn ebenfalls das griechische Alphabet, die Grundlagen der Phonologie sowie ein theoretisches Modell der Sprachentwicklung zu finden sind.

Cicero s De Provinciis Consularibus Oratio

Perhaps no other single Roman speech exemplifies the connection between oratory, politics and imperialism better than Cicero's De Provinciis Consularibus, pronounced to the senate in 56 BC. Cicero puts his talents at the service of the powerful "triumviri" (Caesar, Crassus and Pompey), whose aims he advances by appealing to the senators' imperialistic and chauvinistic ideology. This oration, then, yields precious insights into several areas of late republican life: international relations between Rome and the provinces (Gaul, Macedonia and Judaea); the senators' view on governors, publicani (tax-farmers) and foreigners; the dirty mechanics of high politics in the 50s, driven by lust for domination and money; and Cicero's own role in that political choreography. This speech also exemplifies the exceptional range of Cicero's oratory: the invective against Piso and Gabinius calls for biting irony, the praise of Caesar displays high rhetoric, the rejection of other senators' recommendations is a tour de force of logical and sophisticated argument, and Cicero's justification for his own conduct is embedded in the self-fashioning narrative which is typical of his post reditum speeches. This new commentary includes an updated introduction, which provides the readers with a historical, rhetorical and stylistic background to appreciate the complexities of Cicero's oration, as well as indexes and maps.
