Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
So much of what we know of the Ancient World comes from Herodotus (c.490 BC - c.420 BC) that he will always remain the greatest of historians. But, in addition, such a large part of the entertainment value of the Ancient World comes from his enormous, omnivorous, sometimes credulous appetite for stories of distant lands and strange creatures. "Great Journeys" allows readers to travel both around the planet and back through the centuries - but also back into ideas and worlds frightening, ruthless and cruel in different ways from our own. Few reading experiences can begin to match that of engaging with writers who saw astounding things: great civilisations, walls of ice, violent and implacable jungles, deserts and mountains, multitudes of birds and flowers new to science. Reading these books is to see the world afresh, to rediscover a time when many cultures were quite strange to each other, where legends and stories were treated as facts and in which so much was still to be discovered.

Book Description: Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 2003. soft. Book Condition: New. Because so much of what we know of the ancient world comes from Herodotus, writing in the 5th century BC, he will always remain, as Cicero deemed him, the Father of Historians. At the same time, a large part of the ability of history to entertain comes from his enormous, omnivorous, at times credulous appetite for stories of distant lands and strange creatures. This collection of five Histories from Herodotus, translated in 1954 by Aubrey de Selincourt and revised in 1996 by John Marincola, focuses on Egypt, with such remarkable comments as "Everybody here paints himself red and eats monkeys." 118.
