A comprehensive presentation of nearly 1000 years of Greek literature from pre-Homeric times to the end of the period of stable Graeco-Roman civilization in the 3rd century A.D. An Appendix of Authors and Works provides additional factual information as well as selective surveys of recent bibliographies.From the Back Cover:
This volume ranges in time over a very long period and covers the Greeks' most original contributions to intellectual history. It begins and ends with philosophy, but it also includes major sections on historiography and oratory. Although each of these areas had functions which in the modern world would not be considered 'literary', the ancients made a less sharp distinction between intellectual and artistic production, and the authors included in this volume are some of Europe's most powerful stylists: Plato, Herodotus, Thucydides and Demosthenses.
