This anthology presents over fifty extracts representing all the major Greek prose writers from the fifth century B.C. through to the fourth century A.D.: Herodotus, Thucydides, Lysias, Isocrates, Plato, Xenophon, Aristotle, writers from the Hellenistic and Roman periods (including some New Testament and other Greek Christian writers), and many others. Introducing a broad range of style and syntax, the passages are accompanied by explanatory notes, full references to grammar, a useful introduction, and grammatical and stylistic indexes. The only anthology of its kind, this book will be an essential guide for both students and teachers of Greek literary appreciation and prose composition.

From the Back Cover:

This anthology fills a gap which has been widely felt. It gives students--at sixth-form, undergraduate or junior graduate level--the opportunity of sampling a very wide variety of Greek prose, texts, chosen to illustrate both development and generic differences.
