DE OPTIMO GENERE ORATORUM PDF

The short treatise which bears the title de Optimo Genere Oratorum was written by Cicero in the year 46 b. In the Orator Cicero goes one step further and seeks for the pattern of the perfect orator, for an ideal which has never been embodied in any one orator, and perhaps never will be found, but to which Demosthenes is the closest approximation. Of this advanced position there is no trace in the de Optimo Genere Oratorum, and it seems unlikely that if it had been written after the Orator, Cicero would have reverted to his earlier views. It professes to be an introduction to a translation of Demosthenes On the Crown, and Aeschines Against. More Contact Us How to Subscribe. Search Publications Pages Publications Pages.

The translation was never published and probably never made. It exhibits a roughness and at times obscurity of style which would hardly have been put forth by the fastidious author of the Brutus and the Orator ; and beyond that there are two passages 12, 18 in which the confusion of thought can best be explained by assuming that the manuscript contained two drafts of the same ideas, which waited for a final revision that never came because the task was laid aside for the more ambitious Orator.

For the constitution of the text of the de Optimo Genere we have two classes of manuscripts; one composed of two codices of the eleventh century, Sangallensis G and Parisinus P ; the other comprising a number of manuscripts from the fifteenth century. As in the case of the de Inventione the war has prevented the translator from making his own collations. He offers, therefore, a secondhand text based on the apparatus offered by Orelli, Friedrich, Hedicke, Fossataro, Wilkins and others.

Furthermore, he is embarrassed by the disagreement among previous editors as to the readings in several passages and can therefore give no assurance that even the apparatus criticus is correct. The eleventh-century codices seem to contain many minor errors, most of which have been corrected in one or another of the later manuscripts. The more serious difficulties, however, are common to all, and. More Contact Us How to Subscribe. Search Publications Pages Publications Pages. Advanced Search Help.
