Titus, if I can lift or ease the care That ceaseless burns and rankles in your breast, What guerdon shall be mine?". For I may be permitted to address you, Atticus, in the very verses in which Flamininus is addressed by. "That man so rich in probity, not gold,". although I feel assured that it is by no means true, as of Flamininus, that.

  • This edition of Cicero's De Senectute will probably suite the needs of most intermediate students (whether undergraduates or those studying on their own). It offers help with most of the difficult grammatical constructions, and has a pretty good (though not great) vocabulary at the end. Students who have only used commentaries published in the past twenty years or so (such as Steven Cerutti's pro Archia) will surely find far less help with the grammar and syntax than they are used to. Essentially only really difficult or unusual constructions are addresses. Also, the notes *never* give lexical help, no matter how unusual the word (on the assumption that the student can look it up in the glossary). The many references in the text to middle Republican figures are all glossed (though annoyingly only on the first mention and thereafter references with "see p...).

    You may want to be aware that Bennett was from a generation of scholars who did not look upon Cicero so favorably (to paraphrase a contemporary of his, Cicero was an unprincipled opportunist, a mere rhetorician, and a shabby journalist!). As such Bennett takes every opportunity to point out the flaws or inconsistencies in Cicero's prose, and almost never points out the (many) instances where his prose is carefully constructed, harmonious, and balanced. This can get wearisome after the first dozen or so times!

    All this said, this commentary should suit the needs of most students. Don't expect an abundance of help, but it should be enough to get you through. Since this is an offprint of a 1922 book (New Cicero by Charles Bennett) there are many inexpensive used editions available as well.

  • The book was needed for a Latin course at the University of Iowa. It came in good condition right before classes started. The professor chose a good piece of material, that both taught essential concepts of the language as well as provided good historical context too.
