For this volume Ian Scott-Kilvert has selected nine of Plutarch's Roman Lives: figures whose careers range from the earliest years of the Republic to the establishment of the Empire under Octavius Caesar. The Shakespearean heroes Coriolanus, Brutus and Mark Antony have been included to illustrate Plutarch's fondness for a semi-fictional rather than a factual treatment of history.
