Plutarco,Mercedes López Salvá,Rosa Mª Aguilar,Mª Antonia's Obras morales y de costumbres (Moralia) III (Biblioteca PDF

By Plutarco,Mercedes López Salvá,Rosa Mª Aguilar,Mª Antonia Medel,Carlos García Gual

Varios tratados sobre el carácter de los pueblos que más conocía y admiraba Plutarco (como el romano y el espartano) se combinan aquí con un sincero elogio de l. a. dignidad de l. a. mujer.
Este volumen reúne una serie de escritos plutarqueos emparentados por una intención ejemplarizante vehiculada mediante casos extraídos de los angeles historia. Por «Máximas de reyes y generales» desfilan hechos y sentencias emblemáticos y aleccionadores de grandes estadistas griegos, persas, escitas, siracusanos, macedonios y sirios; Alejandro Magno se lleva los angeles palma con treinta y cuatro menciones, pero también asoman a estas páginas Pisístrato, Licurgo, Alcibíades y Pericles, entre otros muchos. «Máximas de romanos» es un apéndice al anterior tratado que ofrece una panorámica histórica desde el siglo III a. C., y constituye una excelente invitación para leer las Vidas paralelas, pues el lector entra en contacto con Fabio Máximo, Escipión el Mayor, Catón el Viejo, Escipión el Joven, Cicerón y Gayo César, que protagonizan algunas de las biografías de esta serie. «Máximas de espartanos» aplica el mismo tratamiento a personalidades lacedemonias, y expresa l. a. admiración que el autor siente por el pueblo de Esparta, su constitución política y su tipo de vida, así como por su proverbial carácter austero. «Antiguas costumbres de los espartanos» recopila anécdotas de l. a. vida cotidiana lacónica en las que Plutarco expresa de nuevo su querencia por Esparta, pero no a través de sus personajes encumbrados, sino de referencias precisas a su alimentación, educación y demás elementos constitutivos, sacadas de los tres grandes historiadores griegos: Heródoto, Tucídides y Jenofonte.
«Virtudes de mujeres», dirigida a Clea, amiga de Plutarco y sacerdotisa del templo de Delfos, es un texto singular por su carácter antimisogínico, puesto que incluye casos históricos donde relucen las virtudes de mujeres reales definidas por su nobleza y no por su procedencia: troyanas, focenses, quiotas y demás se distinguen por el coraje, los angeles audacia, los angeles bondad, l. a. honradez y l. a. inteligencia. Como ya demostrara en «Deberes del matrimonio» (volumen II de los Moralia), Plutarco siente un hondo respeto por l. a. mujer y cree posible los angeles felicidad duradera en el matrimonio, que él testó en su propia vida.
