The exam-board approved book for OCR's Latin AS and A-Level prescription of Cicero's Philippic II.

Christopher Tanfield teaches Classics at South Hampstead High School, London, UK. He is the author of Virgil Aeneid X: A Selection (Bloomsbury, 2016).

This is the endorsed publication from OCR and Bloomsbury for the Latin AS and A-Level (Group 1) prescription of Cicero's Philippic II sections 4450 ( viri tui similis esses) and 78 (C. Caesari ex Hispania redeunti)92, and the A-Level (Group 2) prescription of sections 100119, giving full Latin text, commentary and vocabulary, with a detailed introduction that also covers the prescribed text to be read in English for A Level. It is 44 BC. Following Caesar's assassination, his supporters are looking for a new leader. Caesar's deputy, Antony, and the 18-year-old Octavian, the future Augustus, are vying with each other to fill the role; each seems more concerned with personal power than the good of Rome. Cicero returns to the city to try to save it with the one weapon at his disposal: his oratory. In this speech, the longest of the Philippics (so-called after a series of speeches made against Philip of Macedon), Cicero starts by defending his own career and then the part we read - demolishes Antony's. A masterpiece of invective, it ensures Antony's bitter hostility and Cicero's eventual elimination. Resources are available on the Companion Website www.bloomsbury.com/ocr-editions-2019-2021
