    eBook The Greek Way PDF/EPUB æ The Greek PDF/EPUB ² · bchipdigital.co.uk · greek pdf, The Greek free, The Greek Way PDF/EPUBEdith Hamilton is my favourite writer when it comes to describing ancient Greek mythology This is her first book where she tries to place the context of intellectual life in 5th C Athens from which so much influential poetry theatre and philosophy will be born It feels like you are walking down the lane in front of the Parthenon with the plunging view of Athens seeing Socrates pass by with a gaggle of students around him Aristophanes on the side of a building looking up at a flock of birds a young Plato listening on the steps of the Forum to a public debate

    eBook The Greek Way PDF/EPUB æ The Greek PDF/EPUB ² · bchipdigital.co.uk · greek pdf, The Greek free, The Greek Way PDF/EPUBI have been re reading this for the first time since high school It remains a splendid book Hard to imagine what could be better for the purpose of introducing the achievements of classical Greece to modern readers The author treats her subject with the clarity and brevity that comes from mastery She explains to the reader what was singular about the Greeks and why it continues to matter to this dayWhen I had read it in high school I had not favored it as much as I had H D F Kitto’s The Greeks; but that was because I had been interested in what Kitto’s book covers — the Greeks’ invention of politics — and its description of the polis Now however I understand that both books are indispensable for any English language reader who wishes to appreciate the legacy of the Gre

    eBook The Greek Way PDF/EPUB æ The Greek PDF/EPUB ² · bchipdigital.co.uk · greek pdf, The Greek free, The Greek Way PDF/EPUBEdith Hamilton's prose reads like a disjointed and stilted school boy translation of ancient greek Plus she's a snob and a hyperbolist Her books should be put on the trash heap with all the other Victorian bombasts If you want to learn why to love the ancients go read a novel by Mary Renault

    eBook The Greek Way PDF/EPUB æ The Greek PDF/EPUB ² · bchipdigital.co.uk · greek pdf, The Greek free, The Greek Way PDF/EPUBChapters 5 14 of The Greek Way are excellent Edith Hamilton is at her best when sketching biographies of specific people She makes historical figures come alive as real humans by examining their writings as well as anecdotes told about them by their contemporaries One high point for me was the story of Socrates drinking everyone else under the table at the dinner party and of him being ribbed by his companions about his shrewish wife Such moments make this book worthwhile for any student of the classicsHowever the first four chapters and the last three share in the same flaws that I noted in my review of The Echo of Greece When Edith Hamilton discusses the “Greek mind” or the “Greek way” she inevitably focuses on 5th century Athens The way of the Lacedaemonians the way of the Corinthians even the way of earlier Mycenaens or Minoans have no part in “The Greek Way” as far as Hamilton is concerned When she gives her broad overviews she paints with a big brush and her dep
