This new translation of Plutarch's miscellaneous works, the Moralia, illuminates his thinking on religious, ethical, social, and political issues. Two genres are represented: the dialogue, which Plutarch wrote in a tradition nearer to Cicero than to Plato, and the informal treatise or essay, in which his personality is most clearly displayed. His diffuse and individual style conveys a character of great charm and authority. This edition includes an introduction, notes, sources of quotations, and a glossary of proper names.
