Rome

Historians divide the movement in Rome into two periods, the Age of Cicero, from 80 to 43 B.C. and the Age of Augustus, from 37 B.C. to 14 A.D. The Roman culture is often considered an extension of early Greek civilization, the two often being described as Greco-Roman. The Romans, however, added their own political, military, and legal views to Greek values. Greek literature was the model for Roman writings in prose, poetry, as well as drama, and the works themselves were often composed in both Greek and Latin. Satire also formed the basis for Roman social commentary. Vergil (70-19 B.C.) and Cicero (106-43 B.C.) have been identified as the significant literary figures of the periods. Cicero was one of the greatest prose writers and orators of the time, whose works include numerous legal and political speeches as well as philosophical letters and essays.
