About this title:

Synopsis: Architecture and Meaning on the Athenian Acropolis focuses on the architectural complex that is generally considered to be one of the outstanding achievements of Western civilization. Though the buildings and sculpture of the Acropolis, erected over the course of the fifth century B.C., have been scrutinized by scholars for more than a century, Robin Rhodes' sensitive analysis is the first to consider the ensemble as a whole and to explain how the monuments communicate meaningfully with one another to form an iconographic narrative. His study also examines the sculpture and decoration, which were conceived together with the abstract features, while relating both to the larger issues in Greek architecture and aesthetics.

Book Description: Erected over the course of the fifth century B.C., the buildings and sculpture of the Acropolis have been scrutinized by scholars for more than a century. This analysis is the first to consider the ensemble as a whole and explain how the monuments form an iconographic narrative.
