Robert Harris: Imperium

Robert Dennis Harris born 7 March is an English novelist.

Robert Harris (novelist)

There is a particular pleasure for Robert Harris, the author of bestselling novels such as Fatherland , Pompeii and Munich , in hanging out with actors, and floating around backstage with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In his teenage years he longed to become a playwright and was an avid writer of pieces for his friends. That dream faded away; as a young man, he worked for BBC current affairs programmes, before becoming political editor of the Observer and then a columnist for the Sunday Times. But now, to his delight, he is getting to watch his novels about the Roman politician Cicero adapted into a pair of stage dramas by Mike Poulton. The productions, directed by Gregory Doran , have already had a successful run in Stratford-upon-Avon, and now are opening at the Gielgud theatre in London. Shakespeare, like every grammar school boy of his time, was brought up on Cicero, Ovid and Seneca.

The Cicero Trilogy — Imperium , Lustrum and Dictator — tells the story of the life of the great Roman orator and statesman Cicero, imagined in the form of a biography written by his secretary, Tiro. That there was such a man as Tiro and that he wrote such a book are well-attested historical facts. Born a slave on the family estate, Tiro was three years younger than his master but long outlived him, surviving, according to Saint Jerome, until he reached his hundredth year. He also wrote several treatises on the development of Latin. His multi-volume life of Cicero is referred to as a source by the first century historian Asconius Pedianus; Plutarch cites it twice.

This epic trilogy by Robert Harris includes his bestselling novels: Imperium, Lustrum and Dictator. Imperium - Compellingly written in Tiro's.

3 thoughts on “The Cicero Trilogy by Robert Harris

  1. Imperium - Compellingly written in Tiro's voice, Imperium takes us inside the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics, to describe how one man - clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable - fought to reach the top.
