Epicu my ma by Max Radin

Epicu my ma

Email this review


A dignified, philosophical -- as against the lively, scandalous Graves' school -- recreation, via diary form, of the life, times and thoughts of Atticus, follower of Epicurus and friend of Cicero. Atticus writes of Rome as he knows it, of the men -- the Caesars, Mare Antony, Pompey, Maecenas, and others --of his family life, the views he holds as an Epicurean, of the disease that is killing him and his attitude toward it... By a legal light, this is of more interest to scholars than the general public, but has an intimate feeling for its central character and his era.
