This e-book is ready the recognized Roman orator and statesman Cicero and his rhetorical and political method as a newcomer in Roman republican politics. Henriette van der Blom argues that Cicero marketed himself as a follower of selected types of behaviour from the earlier - his function versions - and in flip provided himself as a task version to others. This unique approach presents clean insights into the political and literary profession of 1 of the best-known Romans, and into the
political discourse of the overdue Roman Republic.
