9789626343456: Classics: A Very Short Introduction (Non-fiction)

This Very Short Introduction to Classics links a haunting temple on a lonely mountainside to the glory of ancient Greece and the grandeur of Rome, and to Classics within modern culture - from Jefferson and Byron to Asterix and Ben-Hur. Edith Hall writes: 'Statues and slavery, temples and tragedies, museum, marbles and mythology' - this provocative guide to the Classics demystifies its varied subject-matter while seducing the reader with the obvious enthusiasm and pleasure which mark its writing.
