"Dr. Coulter H. George's [G.] 'Expression of Agency in Ancient Greek' ['Expressions'] is a clear, well-written, well-structured, well-argued, and therefore easily accessible exposition and discussion of passive with agent constructions in Ancient Greek. G has managed to write an extremely clear, well-argued and engaging book about passive with agent constructions in Ancient Greek, and I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in this area."
Jonas S. Green, Philosophy, King's College London, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"The book is lucid, eminently readable--one would not hesitate to recommend it to an undergraduate--and a model of sanity in argumentation. Handy summaries of the argument and a detailed index make it easy to consult piecemeal, but it can also be read as a whole when so tackled, is far more interesting than one might expect. This book will surely be the definitive work on the subject for decades to come." - Eleanor Dickey, University of Exeter, Classical World
This title explores the development by Ancient Greek of prepositions to mark the agents of passive verbs, from Homer through to the first millennium AD. The translation of examples renders the title accessible to non-classicists interested in changes in prepositional systems generally.
