Plutarch was not concerned with writing histories, as such, but in exploring the influence of character, good or bad, on the lives and destinies of famous men. The first pair of lives the Epaminondas-Scipio Africanus no longer exists, and many of the remaining lives are truncated, contain obvious lacunae and/or have been tampered with by later /5(K).

"Plutarch's Lives Volume II" is the second part of a collection of biographies of well-known figures from ancient Greece, Rome, Macedonia, Sparta, Persia, and Egypt. In this volume are included Plutarch's depictions of Sertorius, Eumenes, Agesilaus, Pompey, Alexander, Caesar, . When the Greek historian PLUTARCH (c. 46 A.D A.D.) set out to tell the tales of the famous figures from Greek and Roman history, he was more concerned with illuminating their characters than enumerating their deeds, more interested in exploring their moral failings and triumphs than in listing their conquests. The result: Plutarch's Lives.
