Plutarch's Lives, written at the beginning of the second century A.D., is a brilliant social history of the ancient world by one of the greatest biographers and moralists of all time. In what is by far his most famous and influential work, Plutarch reveals the character and personality of his subjects and how they led ultimately to tragedy or victory. The conclusion to his most ambitious work, Volume II contains profiles and comparisons of Demosthenes and Cicero, Pompey and Agesilas, Demetrius and Antony, and many more powerful figures of ancient Greece and Rome.
