Description
100 stories from Ancient Greece and Rome, reflecting the breadth of the Classical literary canon but, as significantly, including a fascinating mix of English translators; from Elizabeth I and Percy Bysshe Shelley to Lawrence of Arabia and Ted Hughes. Inspired by the richness and variety of Homeric storytelling, an expertly researched and eclectic anthology. Abounding with the greatest of classical writing: the epics of Homer and Hesiod, the dialogues of Plato, tragedies of Aeschylus, histories of Herodotus, biographies of Suetonius, to early Christian era writers; alongside the obscure, surprising and esoteric, such as Pliny the Elder on the origins of lampstands and Galen on treating snakebites. The familiar and unexpected make this a page-turning collection of timeless tales.
