Plutarch's Advice to the Bride and Groom and A Consolation to His Wife
English Translations, Commentary, Interpretive Essays, and BibliographyeBook - 1999
While perhaps best known for his Lives, Plutarch also wrote philosophical dialogues that constitute a major intellectual legacy from the first century A.D. This collection presents two important short works from his writings in moral philosophy. They reveal Plutarch at his best--informative,sympathetic, rich in narrative--and are accompanied by an extensive commentary that situates Plutarch and his views on marriage in their historical context.
