If I could make one Christmas wish, it would be that every MP receives these two volumes in their stocking next week, and is obliged to recite a passage of Cicero—in D. R. Shackleton Bailey’s crystalline translation—on Boxing Day morning, to understand how great speeches are made… The great advantage of the Loeb editions is that readers who are interested in the language of Rome but whose Latin is weak (a category in which I am emphatically included) can compare the original side by side with the translation. Thus one can get a sense of how Cicero’s words sounded, before glancing across and seeing them in English… This translation is throughout a joy to read.—Robert Harris, The Sunday Times
