Excerpt from Shakespeare's Plutarch, Vol. 1: Containing the Main Sources of Julius Caesar

But it is as author of the Parallel Live: of the famous Greeks and Romans that Plutarch has most strongly and most healthily affected the literature of modern Europe. Few other books of the ancient world have had since the middle ages so interesting a career; in the history of no other, perhaps - mot even the [lard-can we see so plainly that rare electric ?ash of sympathy where the Spirit of classical literature blends with the modern spirit, and the renascence becomes s'living reality. The Liver of Plutarch were early translated into Latin, and versions of them in that language were among the first productions of the printing press, one such edition being published at Rome about 1470. It was almost certainly in this Latin form that they first attracted the attention and the pious study of Jacques Amyot (1514 - 93)
