Considered possibly the greatest orator in human history, Cicero is also given credit for introducing Greek philosophy to Rome.  Familiarity with the orations of Cicero is necessary for anyone hoping to understand western civilization.

Originally published in 1895, this book provides the reader with ten examples of Cicero's oratory: First oration against Lucius Catalina; Second oration against Lucius Catalina; Third oration against Lucius Catalina; Fourth oration against Lucius Catalina; In defence of proposed Manilian Law; For Aulus Licinius Archias the poet; For Marcus Claudius Marcellus; In defence of Quintus Ligarius; In defence of Titus Annius Milo; and finally, perhaps the most fun to read, The prosecution of Verres.
