Meditations (Emperor of Rome Marcus Aurelius) Book Reviews

Interesting...but now I knowMaybe it was the translation, I don’t know.🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Hoping for more insight, it is what it is..Score: 3/5

Victorian translation.Victorian translation. Accurate, but sounds a bit stilted to a modern ear..Score: 2/5

Demonstrating the need for a modern translationIt is a fine service that this translation has been made freely available. For myself, however, I find it an unsatisfactory translation, because the translator insists on using antique phrasings in the style of the King James Bible. Perhaps this was an effort to dignify and honor Aurelius' work, but Aurelius' thoughts need no such assistance, and are harmed by the artificial patina of age applied here, and the air of pontification it creates. Instead, his thoughts require only the clearest possible translation into modern English. That done, they speak for themselves and unpretentiously make their own dignity. Unwittingly, in my view, this translation deprives Aurelius' thoughts of their natural dignity, forthrightness, and ability to speak directly to the reader across the millennia, by inserting the barrier of a pulpit between Aurelius and his reader..Score: 2/5

Positive reflectionsHis meditations give intimate descriptions of the common theories of life,-religious outlook- yet still offer usefulness for reflection and ultimately, application. (Moral philosophy).Score: 4/5

Follow JesusActs 17:16 is where Paul first taught Christ , his death , and resurrection to the stoic’s during his passing and travel in Athens. Some of them stoics listened , and followed Christ and marveled at Paul’s teachings . Some mocked him and didn’t confess their accept to Jesus as lord. The stoics carried wisdom , but the Gospel brings the true revelation . Follow Christ and the teaching of Paul to the gentiles. Just as many stoics once had to make the decision to do as well ..Score: 5/5

My Thoughts on MeditationsIt’s so exhilarating to read a series of poems that were written by Emperor Marcus Aurelius some 2,000 years ago! I thoroughly enjoyed reading the insights provided by Marcus Aurelius, and I was so mesmerized by the fact that he is a firm adherent to the Stoic philosophy!.Score: 5/5

Mind Blowing and OpeningIt takes getting used to, you’ll probably need to use lookup to learn some words, and it’s a certain long winded style but necessary. The reality of the word is much different than summaries from people who haven’t read the book. A must read..Score: 5/5

Life as is supposed to be livedA must read for everyone. Knowledge that holds true today; classic..Score: 5/5

Diamonds in the RoughIf you can bear the archaic language, you will enjoy this book. The best part is the appendix..Score: 4/5
