Account & Lists Account Returns & Orders. Given the kind of person he is, the company he keeps is unsurprisingly equally depraved. 8Throughout, Cicero keeps his text aligned with the fiction that it is a spontaneous response to Antony’s discourse.31 In generic terms, Philippic 2 follows the conventions of oratory with a strong invective bent. Invective discourse postures as a particular form of free speech — one that tears away veneers of respectability to expose and ridicule the hidden reality underneath. Cicero renders the paradox explicit at Phil. He casts him as a monstrous, amoral pervert, hell-bent on subverting Rome’s social institutions and its political culture. Cicero's Second Philippic Pt. By implication, he considered himself second to none in delivering the latter.40 Cicero was fully cognizant of the important contribution the eliciting of laughter can make to effective communication — and had a reputation for his merciless mocking and poisonous (if entertaining) put-downs.41 Indeed, ‘murderous wit’is one of the qualities that Stockton identifies as hallmarks of Ciceronian invective — together with ‘coarse raillery’, ‘pained incredulity’, ‘destructive logic’, and ‘moral fervour’.42, 17While much invective, then, is gleefully mendacious as it opts for the sleazy, the sensational, and the scandalous in its pursuit of vituperative s/laughter, it nevertheless operates under the pretence that it tells the truth. Cicero here revisits the tense period right after Caesar’s assassination, 15–17 March. 8: ‘Career-making in a time of crisis: Marcus Antonius’ oratory’.

It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis to encourage critical engagement with Cicero, his oratory, the politics of late-republican Rome, and the trans-historical import of Cicero’s politics of verbal (and physical) violence. 2.1 Oratory at Rome After a lengthy rebuttal of this battery of charges and a brief transition, Cicero turns the tables on Antony: what Antony blamed on him, he now blames on Antony — and more. Skip to main content.sg. Identities can be negotiated and challenged in discourse — and that is where invective rhetoric, and its potentially transformative power, comes in: it tries to strip the individual under attack of the positive aspects of their identity — of who they are in their own eyes and those of others.

In this regard, when compared with the speeches of the great, fourth-century Athenian orator Demosthenes, whose Philippics inspired Cicero to give his collection the same name, Cicero’s Second Philippic bears a greater resemblance to Demosthenes’ autobiographical Speech on the Crown (De Corona) than it does to Demosthenes’ Philippics proper. Despite undeniable elements of continuity, our identity is under continual negotiation — both for ourselves and for others: indeed, identities are just as much a matter of self-perception as how we are perceived by others: and the two perspectives need not necessarily (indeed rarely do) fully coincide. Both of these terms — oratory and invective — are worth a closer look. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Ingo Gildenhard’s volume will be of particular interest to students of Latin studying for A-Level or on undergraduate courses. Other articles where Philippics is discussed: Marcus Tullius Cicero: Last months: …of August, and his 14 Philippic orations (so called in imitation of Demosthenes’ speeches against Philip II of Macedonia), the first delivered on Sept. 2, 44, the last on April 21, 43, mark his vigorous reentry into politics. The speech concludes with a defiant peroration, in which Cicero expresses his unconditional commitment to weather the crisis of the commonwealth caused by Antony’s perceived power grab — albeit by sacrificing his life for the sake of Rome’s freedom. Cart All. 2.18 = 115 SB, early May 50), Cicero himself refers to him and his two brothers as summo loco natos, promptos, non indisertos (‘of the highest birth and no mean qualities of enterprise and eloquence’) — not people one would want to cross needlessly. At one point, Antony ranks even lower than a homo: Non est vobis res, Quirites, cum scelerato homine ac nefario, sed cum immani taetraque belua! Reliant on expected moves, and on their anticipation, this lobbing of rotten tomatoes is expressive behaviour, semi-un-trammelled by the constraints of ‘proper conduct’, and risking real enough social-political ‘face’ in the clubhouse of Roman prestige: the casement of epideictic braggadocio cushioned plenty, but nevertheless however playfully traded clichés could at (all) times land wounds, brand butts, kick ass. O rem non modo visu foedam, sed etiam auditu! Cicero composed his incendiary Philippics only a few months after Rome was rocked by the brutal assassination of Julius Caesar. PHILIPPICS CICERO M. TULLI CICERONIS IN M. ANTONIUM ORATIO PHILIPPICA PRIMA. Cicero’s oratory arguably helped pave the way for an (even) ‘nastier, more divided’ Rome. The ‘no hard feelings’ attitude may well have prevailed in some cases. 1 This meeting took place on the third day after Caesar's death. Its conventional nature does not exclude impact (not least since many blows in these verbal punch-ups were designed to land below the belt). This rough-and-ready grid is useful as a basic orientation — but does not get us all that far with such an idiosyncratic text as Philippic 2: a written pamphlet that pretends to be the record of an epideictic (or deliberative?) The Philippics (Latin: Philippicae) are a series of 14 speeches composed by Cicero in 44 and 43 BC, condemning Mark Antony.Cicero likened these speeches to those of Demosthenes against Philip II of Macedon; both Demosthenes’s and Cicero's speeches became known as Philippics.Cicero's Second Philippic is styled after Demosthenes' De Corona ('On the Crown'). Cicero himself, throughout his life, was invested in rhetorical education and the figure of the ideal orator (summus orator), who in his view combined wisdom (sapientia) with eloquence (eloquentia) and was equally versed in the best that Greek culture had to offer (in both rhetoric and philosophy) as well as the ancestral traditions of Rome.

He tops his slyly offensive characterization of Cicero as a clever man of the word by suggesting that his own rise to power, which coincided with the cessation of republican politics, created the perfect condition for Cicero to do what he does best. 42 Stockton (1971: 313), cited by Hall (2002: 293, n. 43). Invective also had the potential to reshape and remodel the ethical and political code of society by expelling its deviant elements (or at least by trying to do so; see Ruffell 2003). Introduction to Philippic 2. authentifiez-vous à OpenEdition Freemium for Books. Philippische Reden / Philippica by Cicero was published on 13 Feb 2013 by De Gruyter. When Cato the Elder (234– 149 BCE) defined the orator as ‘a good man who knows how to speak’ (vir bonus dicendi peritus) he polemically asserted that the ability to coruscate with words was of secondary importance to the moral fiber of the speaker: no amount of sparkle, brilliance, and sophistication in the use of language can elevate a wordsmith to the status of an orator if he lacked proper ethics. 43 For Cicero as target of invective himself see Arena (2007a) 153 and van der Blom (2014). 21By purporting to diagnose deviance, invective discourse illuminates the norms, values, and expectations of a civic community — as well as associated fears and anxieties. 22True, a speaker will always portray his decision to abuse as being motivated by concerns for the community, civic welfare, and a commitment to the truth: anything else would be counterproductive. Cover. As Santoro L’Hoir (1992: 26) observes: Cicero fires his ultimate blast of vitriol in his glorious last stand against Antony. Like his predecessors Verres and Clodius, Antony is a homo amentissimus (Phil. 13Antony, too, was an orator of distinction, who received the traditional training of a member of Rome’s ruling elite — and who also continued to hone his rhetorical talents through special tuition later in life.35 In a letter to Q. Thermus (Fam. 1As we have seen, then, Philippic 2 is anything but an impromptu outburst by an irate orator who had just been raked over the coals and ridiculed in front of his peers. Home » Cicero: Philippic II 44–50 & 78–92. To some extent it is therefore pointless to enquire into the referential value of invective assertions designed not to give an accurate depiction of an individual’s life or character, but to turn him into a kind of person you would not want to have in your community. The most famous examples appear in the invective of Philippic 2, where the principal aim is to characterize Antony not as dangerous but as ridiculous; as a man of unparalleled levitas, quite unworthy of respect or admiration. Conceived as Cicero’s response to a verbal attack from Antony in the Senate, Philippic 2 is a rhetorical firework that ranges from abusive references to Antony’s supposedly sordid sex life to a sustained critique of what Cicero saw as Antony’s tyrannical ambitions. Across countries and time, people have used images and words to harm, devastate, and completely destroy other people’s reputation, status, and character. 7. Part of Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. While military accolades, in particular the celebration of a triumph, outshone any other achievement, to be an esteemed public speaker was part of the portfolio of distinctions to which members of Rome’s ruling elite aspired. To select a specific edition, see below. 24The ‘identity’ of a person is a composite and multifaceted phenomenon — despite the etymology of the term (identitas = ‘the quality of being always the same’). Yet, despite all of these personal failings, he is technically speaking consul, a high magistrate of the Roman people: in other words, he is an empowered pervert, whom Cicero identifies and outs not just as spitting counter-image of a member of Rome’s ruling elite, but its mortal enemy. On other occasions, however, Cicero sets out to undermine Antony’s moral and political authority through mockery. [2] Her. In the tumultuous aftermath of Caesar’s death, Cicero and Mark Antony found themselves on opposing sides of an increasingly bitter and dangerous battle for control. Rhet. Auflage 2007. Philippic 2 is conceived as Cicero’s (imaginary) response to the verbal abuse Antony had hurled at him in a meeting of the senate on 19 September, but was in all likelihood never orally delivered: Cicero unleashed his sh•tstorm as a literary pamphlet sometime towards the end of … Putnam's sons edition, in English 3.2), and a homo audacissimus (2.78; 5.13; 6.2). In another adage — ‘stick to the topic, the words will follow’: rem tene, verba sequentur — Cato suggests that no formal training in rhetoric at all was needed to be a public speaker of substance. Cicero composed his incendiary Philippics only a few months after Rome was rocked by the brutal assassination of Julius Caesar. In the Philippics, Cicero opts for a combination of remorseless ridicule and drastic demonization. Under the influence of Greek rhetorical thought, the tension between technical proficiency and authoritative ethics acquired a cross-cultural complexion. Contents. As Hall (2002: 288) observes, perhaps downplaying the demonizing that is also part of Philippic 2: Antony is portrayed through this rhetoric of crisis as a violent, dangerous man who must be vigorously resisted. He consorts with scum, ‘attends birthday parties of professional clowns’ (Hall 2002: 289 on Phil. Tu istis faucibus, istis lateribus, ista gladiatoria totius corporis firmitate tantum vini in Hippiae nuptiis exhauseras, ut tibi necesse esset in populi Romani conspectu vomere postridie. Complete summary of Demosthenes' The Philippics. 11To what extent he was representative of the first half of the second century BCE is difficult to determine, but by the late republic training in Greek and Latin rhetoric, including study trips to Greece, were part and parcel of an elite Roman education.33 Still, Greek rhetorical theory and technique retained their potentially problematic quality in Roman oratorical practice. Phil. ‘Antony’s Oration Over Caesar’s Body’, from: Edward Sylvester Ellis, The Story of the Greatest Nations, from the Dawn of History to the Twentieth Century (1900).38. Shakespeare picks up on this, when he makes Cicero pretentiously speak Greek — and hence remains incomprehensible to an uneducated Roman like Casca, to whom everything Cicero said was, indeed, Greek. 41 His dialogue On the Ideal Orator contains a disquisition on humour in oratory (de Orat. 20How could a speaker know that he was not playing with fire — about to start a feud, go beyond the pale, or, indeed, sign his death sentence?45 Language matters. ... think about C's method of analysis and interpretation..] (25) Do you dare to call the man a she-poisoner who has discovered a remedy [ANALYSIS!] 16Invective speech has a complex relationship with reality, especially in a culture without libel laws as that of ancient Rome.

His verbal annihilation of Antony is not an end in itself: Cicero turns the skewering of the would-be tyrant who beleaguers the city with his soldiers into a rousing cry for (senatorial) freedom. 35 For Antony as orator see Huzar (1982), Mahy (2013) and van der Blom (2016), Ch. 6.4, where he mocks the notion that someone like Antony would listen to a senatorial embassy: Facile vero huic denuntiationi parebit, ut in patrum conscriptorum atque in vestra potestate sit, qui in sua numquam fuerit! In the introduction to Cicero’s Second Philippic (Page 102), the translator states that Antony withdrew from Rome following the final twelve Philippics. Some aspects of who we are (or perceive ourselves to be) are generic (gender, ethnicity, nationality, legal status), others unique (family background, biography, or personal traits). His purpose for coming before the Senate is to drive them to the realization that Marcus Antonius and his actions are slowly breaking down the unity of the country. Quick-Find an Edition. 2 | Cic. As John Henderson (2006: 142– 43) puts it: Invective is all about getting retaliation in first — pinch, punch, and no returns! According to him, Antony has forfeited his right to be a member of Rome’s ruling elite, indeed to be a part of Roman society or even the human species. Perhaps the consequences of unleashing aspersion upon an aristocratic peer happened to be relatively minor: a jeer and chuckle here, some rise in blood pressure and temporary irritation there, but overall a routine part of the political game, a ritual flyting exercise that consisted in the anodyne traffic of predictable insults that had the status of tired clichés and yawn-inducing commonplaces. Yet for a long time they have received little scholarly attention. Lateinische Übungstexte zu Ciceros Reden mit einer deutscher Übersetzung und Anmerkungen. Put bluntly, he wants to shut him up for good. eNotes plot summaries cover all the significant action of The Philippics. 3 So says Antony to Octavian in Shakespeare, Julius Caesar 4.1.; 2 Consisting of selections from Philippic 2, the text set by OCR offers an excellent introduction to, intervention in, and commentary on this period of turmoil and transition. Pliny’s summary of the speech that Quintus Caecilius Metellus gave for his father Marcus in 221 BCE includes the assertion that dad could lay claim to the ten greatest and best achievements, which men with smarts spend their lives pursuing (Pliny the Elder, Natural History 7.139– 40):32. His policy was to make every possible use of Caesar’s adopted son… [He will no doubt readily obey this intimation, so as to submit to the conscript fathers and your power — a man who has never had himself in his power! 15Ancient rhetorical theory distinguishes three branches of oratory: forensic or judicial (employed in court, as part of a trial), deliberative (used to sway an audience on a matter of public policy; in Rome the two primary settings were the Forum and the senate), and epideictic (a ceremonial verbal display, often with the purpose of dispensing blame or praise — as in a funeral oration). Classical Civilisation Tutor (A Level) Required, UCL Ancient World and Classics Virtual Taster Day, Classical Conversations with The University of Oxford’s Faculty of Classics. Philippic 2 was a weapon in that war. He mocks him for lack of natural ability and the hiring of second-rate teachers, who nevertheless get rewarded handsomely from the public purse. He then states that “it was decided that Cicero should pay for his political courage with his life”, implying that he had been in some great magnitude, the cause of Antony’s demise. (Phil.

Go to Perseus: Philippics, Orationes Volume II 1 of 5 editions. Indeed, given Roman society’s lack of canonical moral texts, invective had an important social function to play through its highlighting of virtue and vice.
