, Originally published in 1951, this book was written to provide an introduction to ancient Greek literature for the general reader. All quotations are translated into English and a lack of knowledge regarding the ancient world is taken for granted. In spite of its introductory status, the text is notable for having a self-consciously personal approach. As the author states in the preface, 'My aim was not to achieve completeness or objectivity (which, if it were possible, would be very dull) but merely to write a history of Greek literature as I see it.' This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient Greek literature and literary criticism.
