Plutarch's Lives

Plutarch (Author), Bernadotte Perrin (Translator)
Plutarch (ca. AD 45–120) wrote on many subjects. His forty-six Parallel Lives are biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs, one Greek figure and one similar Roman, though the last four lives are single. They not only record careers and illustrious deeds but also offer rounded portraits of statesmen, orators, and military leaders.
