Summary "Plutarch's series of biographies was the first of its kind. He looked at the great men of the ancient world and told their stories, in many cases drawing on sources which are no longer available to us. They offer a unique insight into the characters as well as the achievements of men who influenced their age and the empires that their culture dominated."--Container
