    Book details

This biographical account describes Cicero's career from his provincial origins through to his tragic end as the Roman Republic crashed around him. Throughout the text Anthony Everitt makes full use of Cicero's own words and those of his contemporaries.

[Anthony Everitt's] achievement is to have replaced the austere classroom effigy with an altogether rounder more awkward and human person. (Financial Times)Not just an excellent biography, but also a fine history of Rome in the first century BC (Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph)Unobtrusively crammed with fascinating information about Roman life and customs, splendidly clear and coherent in it narrative and altogether convincing in its portraiture (Anthony Cronin, Sunday Independent)An engrossing book ... Everitt brings [Cicero] alive, making him a credible as well as a remarkable figure. (Literary Review)
