Overview

The Rhetoricians of the Roman Era collection encapsulates the social attitudes and education of the Roman world. The Institutio Oratoria draws from Quintilian’s own rich experiences to provide a comprehensive training program in 12 books. It offers advice on schooling, the structure of speeches, recommends devices that will engage listeners and appeal to their emotions, all the while counseling on memory, delivery, and gestures.

Marcus Cornelius Fronto’s The Correspondence offers an invaluable picture of aristocratic life and literary culture in the second century. The letters reveal his strong stylistic views and dislike of Stoicism as well as his family joys and sorrows. They portray the successes and trials of this prominent figure in the palace, literary salons, the Senate, and law courts, and they give a fascinating record of the relationship between the foremost teacher of his time and his illustrious student Marcus Aurelius, his chief correspondent.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each text is included in its original Latin, with an English translation for side-by-side comparison. Use Logos’ language tools to go deeper into the Latin text with linked translations, definitions, and pronunciation tools. You can also use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult English words. Quick and easy access to maps and charts, as well as definitions and lexical information, allows you to understand historical events like never before.
