Knox is a noted classics scholar whose essays on Greek literature keep a nice balance between the claims of history and of art, between the discipline of research and the rights of interpretation. Most of his other subjects here come either from literary England or from the Spanish Civil War and World War II. The tragic destinies of nations, warriors, and kings run through this book in a dark undercurrent. Though many of the essays are lengthy book reviews, often full of scholarly dispute, the book as a whole reaches for a wider public of history lovers who will find rich resources here.
