Overview

In the 'Parallel Lives' of Plutarch, written in the first century A.D., Plutarch alternated between Greek and Roman biographies to show how both societies had produced worthy and honourable citizens. F. J. Gould, in his translation for children, decided it would be less confusing for his young readers if he divided the book into two halves, one volume on Greeks and the other on Romans. Here we have the Greek half, which re-tells the ancient tales of virtue and nobility in clear and simple prose; it also includes plenty of help in pronouncing the exotic names of the characters and successfully opens a window on the fascinating world of Ancient Greece. The three original black and white illustrations by Walter Crane are also included in this new edition.
