The surviving Parallel Lives, as they are more properly and commonly known, contain twenty-three pairs of biographies, each pair consisting of one Greek and one Roman, as well as four unpaired, single lives. Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans, commonly called Parallel Lives or Plutarch's Lives, is a series of biographies of famous men, arranged in tandem to illuminate their common moral virtues or failings, written in the late 1st century. It is a work of considerable importance, not only as a source of information about the individuals biographized, but also about the times in which they lived.
Glenn said One of the better low cost versions. The book itself needs not my review, but this kindle version has a nice translation and a table of contents. Tried another cheap version, but this was way better.. My review of the table of contents Adu I bought this mostly to read the chapter on Pompey. I chose this version for the active table of contents. But the table of contents doesn't list the Pompey chapter. The text of the chapter does appear, but is mistakenly patched onto the end of the chapter on Agesilaus.
