Descrizione: In light of Cicero’s claim in Brutus, Frazel shows that Greek rhetorical practice, not simply the « Arts of Rhetoric », did indeed contribute to the composition of Cicero’s In Verrem. Frazel argues that Cicero used the progymnasmata to structure the oration and to depict Verres as a temple robber and a tyrant. The book explores the cultural implications of these choices.
