Athenaze: Teacher's Handbook I by Maurice Balme

Book Description

Combining the best features of traditional and modern methods, Athenaze provides a unique course of instruction that allows students to read connected Greek narrative from an early stage, and guides them to the point where they can read complete classical texts. There is a fictional narrative about an Attic farmer's family placed in precise historical context (432 BC). The narrative is interwoven with tales from mythology and the Persian Wars, and gradually gives way to extracts from Herodotus, Plato, and Thucydides. Each chapter includes a full explanation of new vocabulary and grammar, and an essay on relevant aspects of ancient Greek culture and history. Exercises in translation from English to Greek are integrated throughout.

Plays and Fragments by Maurice Balme Plays and Fragments, Paperback (May 2008)

The greatest writer of Greek New Comedy and the founding father of European comedy, Menander (c.341-290 BC) wrote over one hundred plays, of which only one complete play and substantial fragments of others survive. This new verse translation is accurate and highly readable, providing a consecutive text by using surviving words in the damaged papyri.

Menander by Maurice Balme Menander, Hardback (June 2001)

In ancient times Menander (341-290 BC) was the most admired and quoted of the writers of Attic "New Comedy". This verse translation with explanatory notes and introduction attempts to fill some of the gaps with supplements based on the dramatic situation and surviving words in damaged papyri texts.
