In On the Ideal Orator (De oratore) Cicero, the greatest Roman orator and prose-writer of his day, gives his mature views on rhetoric, oratory, and philosophy. In this volume--the first translation of this work in over fifty years--James May and Jakob Wisse provide an accessible, accurate translation which is based on, and contributes to, the many advances in recent scholarship regarding De oratore and the aspects of ancient rhetoric, philosophy, and history relevant to it.
