World

The remarkably broad range of topics treated in this correspondence, and the innumerable details about Roman life that they include, will likely cause these volumes to be of some interest for every student of the ancient world… This is a translation which aims more for the spirit than the letter, and in that aim it is usually remarkably successful. The accuracy with which Shackleton Bailey can capture a nuanced rendering of a closely interconnected set of clauses is often dazzling, enhanced even further by the frequent elegance of his turns of phrase… The editors of the Loeb series are…to be commended for making this editor’s rendition of Cicero’s Letters to Atticus so conveniently accessible. The collections of Cicero’s correspondence are of undeniable importance in illuminating the Roman world, and Shackleton Bailey’s editions of them well deserve their definitive status.—Richard Hamilton, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
