The Greek Experience
‘An excellent book… as pleasing to the eye as it is to the mind’
Hugh Trevor-Roper, The Sunday Times
Sir Maurice Bowra provides, in the Greek experience, a brilliant summing up of the whole Greek achievement and its legacy to civilisation. Taking as his time span the centuries between the age of Homer and the fall of Athens in 404 BC, he examines their politics and government, poetry and drama, philosophy and science, religion and mythology.
‘To succeed in giving the Greeks a fresh life is a hard task, but Sir Maurice Bowra has achieved it’
Books of the Year, The Sunday Times
‘Each page bristles with bold and original conclusions… We have seldom seen such enormous material so skilfully and excitingly marshalled… One has a compelling impression, on closing the book, of having finished a masterpiece’
