Mark Antony: A Biography

Front Cover
U of Minnesota Press, 1978 - Generals - 347 pages
2 Reviews
In a chronological/topical approach, Professor Huzar recounts the details of Mark Antony's life and his role in the history of Rome and the Roman Empire. The book serves as an excellent introduction to the shifting alliances, the feuds, and the ambitions of the rival politician/generals who held the fate of the Roman Republic in their hands. As Caesar's lieutenant, Octavian's rival, Cicero's murderer, and Cleopatra's lover, Antony led an exciting life, and this biography, written in a lively, readable style, reflects the excitement. But more than just a good story, the work provides a reapprai.
