Review-A-Day

"[T]hese are the musings of a man, not a world leader. However, when he discusses the worthlessness of fame, it's important to remember this was the most famous man in the world talking. When he speaks of the importance of remaining humble, this is coming from someone who was hailed and praised by millions." Doug Brown, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)

About the Author

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (a.d. 121–180) succeeded his adoptive father as emperor of Rome in a.d. 161. A student of philosophy from his earliest youth, he was especially influenced by the first-century Stoic thinker Epictetus. His later reputation rests on his Meditations, written during his later years and never meant for formal publication.

Gregory Hays is assistant professor of classics at the University of Virginia. He is currently completing a translation and critical study of the mythographer Fulgentius.
