A Companion to Plutarch offers a broad survey of the famous historian and biographer; a coherent, comprehensive, and elegant presentation of Plutarch’s thought and influence

  • Provides essential background information on Plutarch’s world, including his own circle of influential friends (Greek and Roman), his travels, his political activity, and his relations with Trajan and other emperors
  • Offers contextualizing background, the literary and cultural details that shed light on some of the fundamental aspects of Plutarch’s thought
  • Surveys the ideologically crucial reception of the Greek Classical Period in Plutarch’s writings
  • Follows the currents of recent serious scholarship, discussing perennial interests, and delving into topics and works not formerly given serious attention
