Overview

"A Handbook of Greek Literature" (reprint of 1950 revised edition) is a concise, yet comprehensive survey of Greek literature that provides brief biographical information about ancient authors, complete analyses of the most prominent works, and the historical and cultural context. It also places them alongside their contemporaries, rates their relative importance in their own times and later periods, and explores their influence on subsequent literatures and Western Civilization. Each known work is discussed and analyzed in terms of content, chronology, genre, significance, meaning, genetic relationship to other works, and ancient and modern scholarship. It is an indispensable reference tool designed to provide everyone from the general reader to the scholar with information about Greek literature from the unparalleled poetry of Homer to the incomparable drama of Aeschylus and including lesser known, but significant works and authors.
