 Cornelius Nepos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pliny the Younger mentions verse written by Nepos, and in his own Life of Dion, Nepos himself refers to a work of his own authorship, De Historicis.
This view has been tempered by more recent scholarship, which agrees with Lambinus that they are the work of Nepos, but that Probus probably abridged the biographies when he added the verse dedication.

 Geometry.Net - Authors Books: Cornelius Nepos
As the introduction by Roebuck states, Cornelius Nepos is considered an easy author to translate, given that his language is common and plain in construction, not given to a wide range of artistic flourishes that make for tricky translation (Julius Caesar was also said to write in this way).
Cornelius Nepos is a somewhat shadowy figure, and not all of his work has survived into the modern world.
My experience with Nepos and this text by Bolchazy-Carducci (the same people who produce 'Cat in the Hat' in Latin, and such) was a good one, and I recommend it as a text for anyone who has had a basic Latin class, and wants to turn the hand to translating something 'real'.

 Bryn Mawr College Graduate Student Symposium: All for One or One for All? (Re)constructing Identity in the Ancient World
I think we must acknowledge that Cornelius Nepos was in his day a significant literary figure acting in at least one movement that was relatively new to Rome, but nonetheless centuries old.
Nepos twice in the extant de Viris Illustribus refers to history writing with the verb explicare (once in the prologue to the Outstanding Generals of Foreign Peoples), and this is the word that Catullus uses of Nepos' method of composition.
Nepos knows a great deal, as we can see from the fragments of his Exempla and Chronica, but a major objective of his is to make some of that knowledge accessible to a Greekless audience.

 Cornelius Nepos - LoveToKnow 1911
Nepos is not altogether happy in the subjects of his biographies, and he writes rather as a panegyrist than as a biographer, although he can rebuke his own countrymen on occasion.
The Lives were formerly attributed to Aemilius Probus of the 4th century A.D.; but the view maintained by Lambinus (in his famous edition, 1569) - that they are all the work of Nepos - is now generally accepted.
A dedicatory epigram written by Probus to the emperor Theodosius and inserted after the life of Hannibal, was the origin of the mistake.

Cornelius Nepos' Place in the Literary Movements of the First Century B.C. While recent scholarship has tended to view Cornelius Nepos mainly as an innovator in at least one genre of literature, I have attempted to place him within the literary movements of his day.
Nepos was also involved in the antiquarian movement of the first century B.C. believe that the understanding of Nepos as a writer relies on an understanding of his identity in the community of his time.
Nepos chooses, in many cases, unusual figures on whom to base his biographies, and often concentrates on lesser-known episodes from their lives.

 DATAMES
According to Nepos, at the beginning of his career Datames served in Artaxerxes' palace guard and showed his military talents and bravery in the Cadusian campaign of ca.
Datames first tried to persuade Thuys to submit (Nepos, Datames 2.3), but after having escaped death only through his mother's warning he declared war against Thuys, who was at last captured alive (2.3-5) and brought to the royal court by Datames in person (3.1-4).
Datames was warned of developments by his friend Pandantes, the royal treasurer (Nepos, Datames 5.3); he then decided to leave the army assembled at Phoenician Ake@ in command of Mandrocles of Magnesia and to return "with his own men" (cum suis) to Cappadocia (5.6).

Cornelius Nepos was born in Cisalpine Gaul but lived in Rome and was a friend of Cicero, Atticus, and Catullus.
Extant is a portion of his 'De Viris Illustribus': (i) part of his parallel lives of Roman and non-Roman famous men, namely the portion containing lives of non-Roman generals (all Greeks except three) and a chapter on kings; and (ii) two lives from the class of historians.
The lives are short popular biographies of various kinds, written in a usually plain readable style, of value today because of Nepos' use of many good sources.

He did the same thing in his other books; thus at the request of Marcus Brutus he gave an account of the Junian family from its origin to the present time, recording who was whose offspring, what magistracies he held, and their dates.
He did the same at Claudius Marcellus' request for the Marcelli, at Cornelius Scipio's and Fabius Maximus' on the Fabii and Aemilii.
And before this befell him, after he felt the pains increase daily and the fever grow, he gave orders for his son-in-law Agrippa to be summoned, and Lucius Cornelius Balbus and Sextus Peducaeus along with him.

 Nepos: Biographien berühmter Männer
Ursprünglich umfasste dieses Werk mindestens 16 Bücher, in denen Nepos Biographien von rund 400 berühmten Männern verfasst hat – geordnet nach Berufen und jeweils unterteilt in Nicht-Römer und Römer.
Die Auslassung oder "Uminterpretation" einzelner historischer Fakten, Fehler in der chronologischen Reihenfolge wie auch manches "Missverständnis" basieren zumeist nicht auf mangelhaftem Wissen Nepos’, sondern sind Ergebnis des dramaturgischen Konzepts des Schriftstellers: in allen Biographien verdeutlicht Nepos vorallem die Launenhaftigkeit Fortunas, zeigt aber auch die Folgen (allzu)menschlicher Charakterzüge.
Darüberhinaus sollte der Leser – wie Nepos – nie Nepos’ historischen Hintergrund vergessen: eine Republik, deren Geschicke im ersten Jahrhundert vor unserer Zeitrechnung immer mehr von ehrgeizigen Einzelpersonen bestimmt wird, deren historisch bedingte Skrupel dem Beispiel ihrer jeweiligen Gegner folgend stetig sanken; Bürgerkriege, Proskriptionslisten, Aufstände, Verschwörungen, Umsturzversuche, private Feldzüge, Hungersnöte, (politischer) Mord und Intrige u.ä.
