Critical Insights: Ancient Greek Literature
Almost all the later literature of the west can trace its roots back to the literature of the ancient Greeks. Greek authors strongly influenced Roman writers, who in turn strongly influenced almost all writing that followed over the course of many centuries. This volume offers a multifaceted approach to the literature of the ancient Greeks, particularly their achievements in drama, epic poetry, and lyric verse. It focuses on texts still widely read, studied, and/or performed today.
