Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a comprehensive, chronological survey of Greek literature from Homer to the end of the third century A.D., although perhaps oratory is disproportionately represented. The survey is by genre. The contributors are leading scholars in their fields. Knowledge of Greek is not essential; Greek quotations are accompanied by good translations. The essays succeed in setting the authors and their works in literary and historical perspective. Frequently there is an outline of current scholarly controversies. The appendixes give biographical sketches of the ancient authors and a selected modern bibliography. In a single volume a wealth of knowledge is offered to all who are interested in European literature. Valerie M. Warrior, Classics Dept., Amherst Coll., Mass.
