Autorenporträt
Marc Aurel, geboren 121 n. Chr. in Rom. Ab 161 n. Chr. war er Kaiser des Römischen Reiches, das er in unaufhörlichen Kriegen vor dem Zusammenbruch bewahren mußte. Seine Selbstbetrachtungen sind deutlich von der Philosophie der Stoa beeinflußt. Er starb 180 n. Chr. im Feldlager in Vindobona bei Wien.
Rezensionen
Martin Hammond's translation of Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, like his Iliad and Odyssey, is the work of an unusually gifted translator, and one who understands the value added by careful attention to supplementary material. He writes natural English, direct and often eloquent; the text is well supported by effective notes and a characteristically thorough and well-planned index; Diskin Clay supplies a useful introduction. This is a fine volume Malcolm Heath Greece & Rome Journal
