Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


Cicero, and others in the Roman Republic, were masters of both panegyric and invective, two hugely important genres in ancient oratory, which influenced the later theory and practice of rhetoric. Here distinguished international specialists address strategies of eulogy and vituperation within the Republic, and examine the mechanisms and effects of praise and blame.
