9780199593262: Thucydides and Herodotus

This edited collection looks at two of the most important ancient Greek historians living in the 5th Century BCE who are considered to be the founders of the western tradition of historiography. Thucydides and Herodotus examines the relevant relationship between these historians which is considered, especially nowadays, by historians and philologists to be more significant than previously realized.

The volume includes an introduction by the editors which addresses our changing view of how the historians relate to one another, and twelve papers written by leading experts in the field of ancient history and philology. Nine of the papers discuss either comprehensive issues pertaining to the historians' relationship or their common themes and practices, while three further papers discuss the ancient reception of Herodotus and Thucydides and investigate the historians' debt to Homer.

About the Author:


Edith Foster is Associate Professor of History at Ashland University. She is the author of Thucydides, Pericles, and Periclean Imperialism, of articles on Thucydides and Lucretius in the American Journal of Philology (2009) and in Sea of Languages: Complicating the History of Western Translation (forthcoming), and of numerous book reviews in BMCR, CPH, and Gnomon.

Donald Lateiner studies Greek historiography, ancient epic, and the ancient novels. He is the author of The Historical Method of Herodotus and Sardonic Smile: Nonverbal Behaviors in Homeric Epic. He has introduced and annotated translations of Herodotus and Thucydides. He teaches Greek, Latin, and folklore at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Review:


"Foster and Lateiner's collection of essays on the two foundational writers of the Western tradition of history, Herodotus and Thucydides, is an exceptional volume. The range is wide, and the specific topics covered are ambitious (e.g., the relationship of epic and historiography, Thucydides as a reader of Herodotus, the Persians in Thucydides, both writers and rhetoric, Xenophon, Roman Republican historiography). Editorial generosity combined with firmness is surely responsible for the fact that the individual works, though diverse, share an unusual depth, focus, and clarity of expression."--C.M.C. Green, CHOICE
