Review by: Mark Pearsall, New England Classical Journal - September 26, 2005
Ciraolo’s text is extremely thorough. It has a solid introduction, extensive notes, and running commentary on grammatical forms and stylistic devices. For a student new to the study of Cicero and unfamiliar with the history of Marcus Caelius Rufus, this is a complete work that has all the necessary information, without being overwhelming.
