Plutarch's Lives of Demosthenes and Cicero are an unusual pair in that they are about orators and not military men. With the translations and commentaries, Lintott provides a detailed introduction which discusses the context of the texts, the author, and the philosophy which underlies Plutarch's presentation of the two personalities.
