Read full description of the books:
I had to read this for my Advanced Latin class this semester. If you haven't read any of Cicero's work before you definitely should, the man is an incredible speaker/writer. This version is particularly helpful if you're still learning Latin, as it has editor notes for uncommon vocabulary usage and a good introduction that helps you understand the speech contained within better if you aren't familiar with how Roman law practices worked.
This is also a great book if you're learning Latin due to the fact that Cicero's style of speech is easier to translate than many other Latin authors, and this particular speech is one of the easier ones of Cicero's as well, making it a very good place to start trying to read Latin instead of just tiny snippets and vocabulary words. That said, it is still difficult to translate due to the drastic difference between English and Latin, so patience is definitely a must.
As for the speech within, it's the Roman equivalent to the OJ case, and Cicero is OJ's lawyer. The man knows how to say just the right things in just the right way to get the results he wants, and it shows greatly in this speech. If this is your first time reading the speech in Latin, or just your first time reading Latin, I recommend having an English translation close by to help through it. While it loses some of it's finesse in English, it's still a well-crafted speech. A good site to use if you don't wish to buy a copy that contains English and Latin is Perseus.tufts.edu and search for Pro Caelio. It has the original Latin on as well as the English translations, plus you can select a Latin word and it'll give you the info the editor believes is correct about it. Definitely make sure you give this one a read, it's worth the extra work you might have to put in to read it.
