Plutarch was educated in Athens. He travelled to Rome many times and eventually became a citizen. His most famous work is the Parallel Lives, which details the lives of twenty-three Greeks and twenty-three Romans, from all walks of life, arranged in pairs. These biographies are known to have been used by Shakespeare in some of his dramas. Plutarch also wrote a collection of essays on ethical, religious, political and literary topics, known as Moralia or Ethica, and other biographical works such as Artaxerxes II and Galba.
