9780198718338: Plutarch and his Roman Readers

Plutarch's focus on the great leaders of the classical world, his anecdotal style, and his self-presentation as a good-natured friend and wise counsellor have appealed over the centuries to a wide audience, persons as diverse as Beethoven and Benjamin Franklin, Shakespeare and Harry Truman. This collection of essays on Plutarch's Parallel Lives examines the moral issues Plutarch recognized behind political leadership, and relates his writings to the audience of leading generals and administrators of the Roman empire which he aimed to influence, and to the larger social and political context of the reigns of the Flavian emperors and their successors, Nerva and Trajan, during which he wrote. The essays explore Plutarch's considered views on how his contemporaries could - and we ourselves can - learn from the successes and failures of the great men of the past.

About the Author:


Philip A. Stadter is Eugene H. Falk Professor in the Humanities Emeritus in the Classics Department of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Review:


"Philip Stadter has been publishing excellent scholarship on Plutarch for fifty
years; the two dozen items assembled here come from the second half of that
era. Through these essays every topic in Plutarchan scholarship arises but the
connecting thread is Plutarch's politically and socially influential Roman target
audience, who they were, how they were connected to Plutarch, and how
Plutarch's works, especially his Parallel Lives, developed amidst those relationships
and could have and most probably did affect them...The pervasive depth of Stadter's knowledge and the richness of his perspective make this set of essays the ideal companion to the study of Plutarch." -- Polis
