Through the tunnel of time, our ancestors pass their history on to us. We are what we know, therefore only by knowing where we came from will we know who we really are. The Classical World emerges subtly through the pages of this book, filled with images that speak for themselves. In this masterful work, the renowned international expert in classical culture, Bárbara Pastor, brings the best of the classical legacy back to life through a keen-eyed analysis of the present day. The author demonstrates how the classical world makes its presence felt in the reality that surrounds us, doing so in the form of an in-depth analysis of language, while also focusing her gaze on movies, novels, architecture and works of art. This thorough work includes photographs throughout. An educational, entertaining, and comprehensive approach, suitable for both the most demanding of readers as well as the general public.
