about

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.
Mestrius Plutarchus (c. 46-127), known in English as Plutarch, was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist. Sarah B. Pomeroy is at Hunter College, Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
