The Histories

(Storpocket)
Beskrivning:

'The first example of non-fiction, the text that underlies the entire discipline of history ... it is above all a treasure trove' Tom Holland

One of the masterpieces of classical literature, The Histories describes how a small and quarrelsome band of Greek city states united to repel the might of the Persian empire. But while this epic struggle forms the core of his work, Herodotus' natural curiosity frequently gives rise to colourful digressions - a description of the natural wonders of Egypt; tales of lake-dwellers, dog-headed men and gold-digging ants. With its kaleidoscopic blend of fact and legend, The Histories offers a compelling Greek view of the world in the fifth century BC, in Aubrey de Selincourt's elegant and celebrated translation.

Translated by AUBREY DE SELINCOURT

Revised with an Introduction and notes by JOHN MARINCOLA
