Adult learners of ancient Greek are often attracted to it by the prospect of being able to read in the original a particular author or genre. Greek philosophical writing and Plato in particular is often the target. This book's material has been tried and tested by the author over the years with adult classes, and can be used as a course textbook, or as a handbook for self-teaching.Each of 25 sections is clearly laid out - with tabulation of Greek word-forms and grammar. Each includes ample exercises and practice in reading Greek sentences. Readings in later sections consist of passages of continuous Greek from Plato's Meno, a typical Platonic dramatic dialogue.

About the Author:


Frank Beetham was a retired teacher of Classics and author of the successful Beginning Greek with Homer (Bristol Classical Press, 1994).

Review:


"On the whole the book is a welcome and important contribution to the teaching and learning of Classical Greek. B's idea of focusing on Plato seems felicitous both because of the inherent importance of the Platonic texts and the beauty of Plato's Greek style. B has provided us with another option, a new and useful approach to Plato's Greek for which we should be very grateful."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
