The Parthenon

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Praise for the previous edition:

Wry and imaginative, this gem of a book deconstructs the most famous building in Western history.-Benjamin Schwarz, The Atlantic

In her brief but compendious volume Beard] says that the more we find out about this mysterious structure, the less we know. Her book is especially valuable because it is up to date on the restoration the Parthenon has been undergoing since 1986.-Gary Wills, New York Review of Books

At once an entrancing cultural history and a congenial guide for tourists, armchair travelers, and amateur archaeologists alike, this book conducts readers through the storied past and towering presence of the most famous building in the world. In the revised version of her classic study, Mary Beard now includes the story of the long-awaited new museum opened in 2009 to display the sculptures from the building that still remain in Greece, as well as the controversies that have surrounded it, and asks whether it makes a difference to the Elgin Marble debate.
