A new translation, with an Introduction, by Gregory Hays

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (a.d. 121180) succeeded his adoptive father as emperor of Rome in a.d. 161and Meditations remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. With a profound understanding of human behavior, Marcus provides insights, wisdom, and practical guidance on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity to interacting with others. Consequently, the Meditations have become required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. In Gregory Hayss new translatio—the first in a generation—Marcuss thoughts speak with a new immediacy: never before have they been so directly and powerfully presented.
