A Greek Anthology, Paperback



This book offers an ideal first reader in ancient Greek.

It presents a selection of extracts from a comprehensive range of Greek authors, from Homer to Plutarch, together with generous help with vocabulary and grammar.

The passages have been chosen for their intrinsic interest and variety, and brief introductions set them in context.

All but the commonest Greek words are glossed as they occur and a general vocabulary is included at the back.

Although the book is designed to be used by students who have only completed a beginner's course in Greek, students of all ages will find that it helps them to improve their ability and confidence in reading a wide range of prose and verse texts, while at the same time providing a fascinating and copiously illustrated introduction to the riches and variety of ancient Greek literature over a period of almost a thousand years.
