This study breaks new ground in exploring the letters of Cicero, one of the most important Latin prose writers, whose letters have remained unaccountably neglected. The volume shows that Cicero's letters should be regarded as artistic works, of no less value for being bound up with personal situations, providing a remarkable insight into contemporary culture and literature. All Latin in the text is translated.
