Plutarch is an interesting historian and critic of the major noble Romans and Greeks. For anyone studying Shakespeare, these histories are a necessity to understand where Shakespeare got his material for his plays. In the lives of Marcus Brutus, Julius Caesar, Antony, Coriolanus, as well as others, a reader may notice some blantant instances of plagiarism and other close calls. Additionally, Plutarch does not spare his opinions about the charaters' choices and, in some cases, 'effeminate ways.' For World History students, these stories definitely give human life and characteristics to names that were simply ones to be memorized in a history textbook and tested on later.

Bad Scan Like so many of the free books available for the Nook, this book is very poorly scanned. Pagination and printing is off. It is not worth the trouble, and I am deleting it. I guess you really do get what you pay for¿

Very informative on greek and roman"heroes". He favors the greeks, don't you think? The only rhing i don't necesarily like is his idea on what makes a "hero" and i don't agree with him on that point, but lots can be taken away from this, if not directly.
