Pro Archia was delivered by Cicero in defense of A. Licinius Archias, a Greek poet whose eligibility for Roman citizenship was challenged in 62 BCE. Cicero’s emphasis in the speech is on literature’s humanizing value.
Cerutti provides comprehensive treatment of grammatical issues with keen analysis of the rhetorical devices Cicero wove into the oration. This revised edition includes input from Linda A. Fabrizio, author of the Teacher’s Guide, and a new appendix featuring eight selections from Quintilian.
