Plutarch's Lives: Exploring Virtue and Vice

Duff, T. E. Plutarch's Lives: Exploring Virtue and Vice, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002.

This book lucidly explains how the Parallel Lives of Plutarch (c. AD 45-120) are more than mere `sources' for history. The Lives offer us a unique insight into the reception of Classical Greece and Republican Rome in the Greek world of the second century AD. They also explore and challenge issues of psychology, education, morality, and cultural identity.
