New York Times Bestseller: A magnificent novel of ancient Rome and the tragic life of Cicero, who tried in vain to save the republic he loved from tyranny. In this riveting tale, the Roman Empire in its final glory is seen through the eyes of philosopher, orator, and political theorist Marcus Tullius Cicero. From his birth in 106 BC in the hill town of Arpinum, Cicero, the educated son of a wealthy member of the equestrian order, is destined for greatness. At a young age, he discovers the legend of the Unknown God, the coming Messiah, and it propels him on a journey of spiritual conflict and self-discovery that takes the rising young lawyer from his tumultuous family life to his tenuous alliance with Julius Caesar to a fateful love affair with the Roman empress Livia and, finally, to the political role that will make him a target of powerful enemies--and secure his legacy as one the greatest influences on Western civilization. Based on hundreds of speeches, voluminous private correspondence, and ancient texts and manuscripts, this bestselling epic brings into focus Cicero's complicated relationships with his contemporaries, including Caesar, Mark Antony, and Crassus, and brilliantly captures the pageantry, turmoil, and intrigue of life in ancient Rome. According to legendary editor Maxwell Perkins, author "Taylor Caldwell is a storyteller first, last and foremost, and once you begin reading one of her books, you can't help finishing it." This ebook features an illustrated biography of Taylor Caldwell including rare images from the author's estate.… (mere)

The great orator Cicero brought to life. ( )

Un clásico sobre Roma en su época dorada.
Novela histórica en la que se narra la vida de Marco Tulio Cicerón, famoso abogado, escritor y político romano, en tiempos de Julio Cesar.
Desde la visión de este gran personaje históricos, amigo y enemigo del propio Julio Cesar, así como de Pompeyo; se narra el ocaso de la República en Roma, y el advenimiento de las dictaduras hasta las proximidades de la Roma imperial, que comenzaría con Octavio Augusto, unos años después del asesisanato de Cicerón.
Roma en su explendor o Roma en su decadencia. Explendor de grandes generales como Julio Cesar, pero restricción de las libertades democráticas con las que nació la república romanal.
El lector deberá elegir, y quizá se dé cuenta que después de dos mil años, las cosas realmente no han cambiado mucho, ( )

Esta novela legendaria, fruto de nueve años de investigación, es una fascinante recreación de la vida de Marco Tulio Cicerón en la Roma imperial. Gracias a este trabajo, Taylor consigue describir el mundo de la antigua Roma con gran exactitud y captar el alcance de una figura tan excepcional y controvertida como la de Cicerón. Agudo analista del mundo que le rodeaba, Cicerón fue también una persona adelantada a su tiempo cuya clarividencia le hizo ganarse tantos amigos como enemigos. Convierten esta novela en la obra definitiva sobre uno de los hombres más polifacéticos y más admirados de la historia romana.
