About

     This blog is a line-by-line commentary on the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, beginning with Book 2.  Each post consists of a passage from the Meditations written in bold, followed by commentary on that passage.  

     The reader is encouraged to read the posts in chronological order, beginning from the oldest post (see the "Blog Archive") and working through the posts in order.  Alternatively, the reader may simply reads posts about topics that interest him or her (see "Topics").  Because this is a line-by-line commentary on the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, the reader is also encouraged to acquire a copy of the Meditations to read along with the posts.     

     All passages from the Meditations are my own translations into English from the original ancient Greek.
