About this Item

408 pages. Softcover. New book. CLASSICAL STUDIES. A new edition of a classic text on Herodotus. "A handsome edition. . . . The difficult task of selection is well done and the introduction has a very full account of the dialect and syntax of Herodotus, as well as valuable sections on his life, writings, and style."ÑClassical Review The writings of Herodotus, historian, observer, and delightful storyteller, have long been favorites among teachers and students of the Greek language. The selections in this book will provide reading in the second year for the student who has begun his or her Greek with Homer and who presumably has had no acquaintance with Attic Greek. The book is equally well fitted for the use of the student who has begun in the orthodox fashion with Attic Greek and followed it by Homer. This second Oklahoma edition is enhanced by Megan O. Drinkwater's addition of chapter and section references to the complete works of Herodotus. Amy L. Barbour was educated at Smith College and at Yale, where she took her PH. D. At the time of her death in 1950 she was professor of Greek language and literature at Smith. Megan O. Drinkwater is Assistant Professor of Classics at Agnes Scott College, Decatur, Georgia. (Key Words: Herodotus, Classical Studies, Amy L. Barbour, Megan O. Drinkwater). Bookseller Inventory # 75115X6
