About the Author:

Peter Jones is one of the best-known figures in the teaching and appreciation of the Classics. Co-founder of Friends of Classics, he has published widely on Homer and is a regular contributor to national newspapers. His best-selling Learn Latin, Learn Ancient Greek, Classics in Translation and Ancient and Modern are all published by Duckworth.

Review:

‘Classical languages are dead, and therefore useless, runs the standard attack; Classics no longer has any contemporary relevance. An Intelligent Person’s Guide to Classics offers a series of well-argued and engaging responses to those accusations ...’

‘If this book doesn’t encourage a rebirth in interest in the Classics, nothing will.'
