This book is a chronological survey of the major writers (or reciters, or performers, or orators) of Ancient Greece. Part One considers the major genres of ancient Greek literature: epic, history, drama, satire, lyric, and philosophy. It profiles some of the key issues and authors of each period, characterizes the literature of each period, and sprinkles quotes through the whole. Part Two comprises fifteen short essays on aspects of ancient Greek culture, including language (script and dialects); folklore; music; dance; mythology; painting; theater; government; military structures; class structure; gender relations; innovations; trade; and science. Overall, the book will serve as both reference guide and launchpad for ongoing attention to our Hellenic heritage.
