Beschreibung

This book demonstrates that the Parallel Lives of Plutarch (c. AD 45-120) are far more than simply `sources' for history. A vast retrospective series of biographies of Greek and Roman statesmen, written when Greece was under Roman rule, they aim both to inculcate in the reader the virtues of Greek philosophy and to champion the supremacy of Greek culture against a dominant Rome. As Dr Duff argues, they explore and challenge issues of psychology, education, morality, and cultural identity.

Pressestimmen

Packed with data and easy to use, the book is a perfect tool for students (as well as teachers) of Plutarch ... an extremely good book ... rich in fascinating detail, thorough and thoroughly enjoyable ... everybody interested in Plutarch or his heroes must buy this volume and refer to it often. Journal of Roman Studies A milestone in Plutarchan scholarship ... With almost forty pages of bibliography and impeccably executed indices, the book is a serious fea(s)t of research. Yet it is also reader-friendly, aiming at specialist and non-specialist alike. The argument is lucid, slow-paced, and regularly pauses to recapitulate. Duff guides the reader through the network of Plutarchan texts, switching between Lives and Moralia with grace. Journal of Roman Studies Duff's thought-provoking book initiates a new direction in the discourse concerning the Parallel Lives. Scholarly readers have tended to evade the ethical dimension central to his project. Plutarch's challenge to act in history with virtue is still real. Journal of Hellenic Studies Duff's impressive book addresses Plutarch's moral agenda head-on ... Despite the book's broad topic, abundance of keen scholarly analysis, weighty footnotes and daunting bibliography, Duff's clear structure and style renders it as readable as it is valuable. Journal of Hellenic Studies Duff provides an extensive bibliography that will be invaluable to all students of the Parallel Lives. While the scholarly tone of the volume will win it primarily a graduate student and professional audience, there is much of value for undergraduates as well in a work that offers a fresh view of these perennially-fascinating works. The Classical Outlook An outstanding contribution to the field ... This excellent book by an able scholar will set a new standard in Plutarch studies. American Journal of Philology It is a book that will be used, as well as read, by scholars and if it succeeds in resuscitating the idea of actually reading Plutarch's corpus it will have proved itself a major achievement. Bryn Mawr Classical Review
