Plutarch's Lives

Plutarch (c. 46 120 AD) was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist. He was born into a prominent Greek family in the early days of the Roman Empire, attained a liberal education, and spent his early life as a civic leader and educator. He was best known for his biographies of leading figures in antiquity and his essays on ethics and virtue. Plutarch's Parallel Lives and Moralia influenced the writers and intellectuals of Byzantium, Western Europe and America. Plutarch's work was revered during his own time, and in later antiquity it inspired other historians and philosophers.

Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans, commonly called Parallel Lives or Plutarch's Lives, is a series of biographies of famous men, arranged in tandem to illuminate their common moral virtues or failings, written in the late 1st century. This voume contains two paired biographies: Alcibiades with Coriolanus and Demosthenes with Cicero, as well as five unpaired, single lives: Themistocles, Pericles, Aristides, Caesar and Anthony.
