Reading notes and commentary to Tacitus' Dialogus de oratoribus, a little-known yet key work in Tacitus' ouvre.
6 x 9
F. B. Steele provides notes on the Dialogus de Oratoribus, a little-known tract by the historian Tacitus on the art of oratory. Often dated between the Agricola and Germania, it provides valuable insight into Tacitus' views on rhetoric and, consequently, to the great rhetorical moments in his works of history. Steele here provides helpful and illuminating notes for the intermediate to advanced student that Tacitus' notoriously difficult Latin demands.
