Plutarch, later named, upon becoming a Roman citizen, Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus; (AD 46 – AD ) was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, known primarily for his Parallel Lives and Moralia. He is classified as a Middle Platonist. Plutarch's surviving works were written in Greek, but intended for both Greek and Roman readers/5(68). Plutarch (c. CE) wrote on many subjects. His extant works other than the Parallel Lives are varied, about sixty in number, and known as the Moralia (Moral Essays). They reflect his philosophy about living a good life, and provide a treasury of information concerning Greco-Roman society, traditions, ideals, ethics, and religion.

  This book is considered to be a primary source because the author, Plutarch, was present during the time period and experienced all of the events that led up to the fall of the Roman Republic. He is able to use his knowledge of the important figures and their life in order to express a moral lesson, or how their role played a part in the fall. In addition to the translation of the Parallel Stories, the book contains Plutarch's Roman Questions, Greek Questions, On the Fortune of the Romans, and other minor works, source Greek texts, the translators' introduction and footnotes and an index of proper names.

Fall of the Roman Republic Summary. Rex Warner, the translator, begins the story of Marius by saying that Plutarch's biography of Marius is the least satisfactory of the six lives covered because Plutarch writes little about Marius' political skill. Plutarch wrote during the 1st century AD and he is said to have written books. Plutarch wrote in the hope to inspire others to greatness - and did this through the use negative examples. Cicero wrote during a time when the Empire was stable and connection between Greeks and Romans was increasing.
