MeditationsBook - 1992
The Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus embodied in his person that deeply cherished, ideal figure of antiquity, the philosopher-king. His Meditations, written in moments snatched from military campaigns and the rigors of politics, reveal a mind of exceptional clarity and originality, and a spirit attuned to both the particulars of human destiny and the vast patterns which underlie it. The translator/editor spent a life-time on his edition of the Meditations which is one of the outstanding twentieth-century achievements of classical scholarship.
