Full description for Roman Lives

  • Plutarch's series of biographies were the first of their kind, as much ground breaking in conception as Herodotus was with his "Histories". Plutarch looked at the great men of the Ancient World and told their stories, in many cases drawing on sources which are no longer available to us. They offer a unique insight into the characters as well as the achievements of men who influenced their age and the empires that their culture dominated.
