Consolation of Philosophy, The





by Boethius

Written in prison before his brutal execution in AD 524, Boethius' The Consolation of Philosophy is a conversation between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy whose instruction restores him to health and brings him to enlightenment. Boethius was an eminent public figure who had risen to great political heights in the court of King Theodoric when he was implicated in conspiracy and condemned to death.

Ages 16 and up.
