An Invaluable Introduction to Archaic Greece
I've assigned this book to Ancient Civ. students since ever I've been teaching. It's a book that caught my own interest in Mycenaean and Dark Age Greece twenty years ago, and it's invaluable-- gracefully and powerfully written, and done by one of the finest (if sometimes idiosyncratic) ancient historians of our day. It needs to be read alongside good translations of Homer...and given to anyone who enthuses a bit much about the film 'Troy'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
