 "Cicero" by Anthony Everitt - Salon
Cicero's life (he was born in 106 B.C., in Arpinum, and died in 43 B.C.) coincided with the last golden age of the Roman republic before it was dismantled and turned into an empire.
A brilliant and sometimes scathing lawyer from a well-to-do provincial family, Cicero found himself unwillingly at the heart of a 100-year civil war that pitted the traditional oligarchy of the Senate -- known as the optimates -- against a new breed of fiery class-war demagogues known as populares.
Moreover, Cicero was a vain, voluble, wisecracking sort of guy -- in short, he would forgive much for a good joke and a good dinner.

 Cicero
Indeed Cicero was praised since the Renaissance as the supreme orator, his golden voice of persuasion was assumed to be the business of any congressional orator, since the schools had reinforced this view from the days when the first Latin paradigms were learned.
The study of Cicero's speeches leads one directly into the political history of the years between 80 B.C. and 43 B.C., but they are also examples of legal rhetoric of a highly developed style, and provided models for speechmaking and rhetoric throughout the later Roman Empire and for the modern world since the Renaissance.
The preservation of so much of Cicero's speechmaking is owing to the diligence of Cicero's adroit note-taking secretary, Tiro, who developed a rudimentary shorthand (known as Tironian annotation) of which we have many MS examples.
