Meditations by Marcus Aurelius is a book I have bought in several translations, one I have benefited from reading throughout my life. So you can imagine my joy to see it available in this 1634 translation by Casaubon. His was the first English rendering of this classic. Some may prefer lighter translations than this Elizabethan one, but the poetic approach enhances the wisdom available here. The power of Meditations is enhanced in this translation. If you love this classic, you'll want to own this edition.
