Description - Ancient Greek Civilization by David Sansone

Greek civilization has been continually reinvented, both in antiquity and in our own time. This fully-updated edition provides a concise narrative of Greek history and an analysis of representative works of Greek literature, from Homer to Plutarch, highlighting the burst of intellectual creativity in classical Athens. Ancient Greek Civilization provides a survey of the history, literature, art, and thought of the ancient Greeks. It places special emphasis on the key themes of Greek civilization: the public nature of Greek society, the relationship between the individual and the community, and the tension between myth and reason. This student-friendly second edition is the perfect introduction to the world of the ancient Greeks and includes additional illustrations, maps, and timelines, a glossary, and updated suggestions for further reading.
