About the Authors
  • This is a full-scale scholarly edition of Cicero's speech in defense of P. Cornelius Sulla, delivered in 62 BC. It contains an introduction, a newly established Latin text, a commentary and appendices. The introduction includes a reassessment of Sulla's guilt and Cicero's undertaking of the case and also considers issues such as the prose rhythm of the speech and its publication. The commentary discusses history, text and syntax as well as rhetoric and style.

    • The first full-scale scholarly treatment of the speech
    • Presents a new text incorporating recent textual discoveries
    • Re-assesses the morality of Cicero's defence

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a welcome and impressive addition to this small group of distinguished books....Berry offers a wealth of details...and balances linguistic, historical, political, and rhetorical materials more effectively than any other English commentary on a Ciceronian speech. This masterly, magisterial treatment is destined to become the standard commentary on Pro Sulla until well into the 21st century." Choice

    "Berry's work is excellent. All research libraries and all classical scholars interested in Cicero will want to own it." Christopher P. Craig, Religious Studies Review
