Overview

Histories by Herodotus

"The father of history," as Cicero called him, and a writer possessed of remarkable narrative gifts, enormous scope, and considerable charm, Herodotus has always been beloved by readers well-versed in the classics. Compelled by his desire to "prevent the traces of human events from being erased by time," Herotodus recounts the incidents preceding and following the Persian Wars. He gives us much more than military history, though, providing the fullest portrait of the classical world of the 5th and 6th centuries. This readable new translation is supplemented with expansive notes to help the reader appreciate the book in depth.

The Histories of Herodoutus is the sightings and hearings that Herodotus a native of Halicarnassus, had written down. This includes the customs of Egyptians, far-fetched tales of one-eyed giants, and the Persian war. This is one of the greatest masterpieces of western literature that has been preserved.
