Life and Letters in the Ancient Greek World (Routledge Monographs in Classical Studies) Hardcover – December 24, 2008
Best Books of the Year So Far in fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, children's books, and much more.
‘After a handy introduction … Muir guides his reader round each kind of letter in turn in a sequence of carefully shaped chapters, moving sure-footedly between vivid particulars and illuminating generalisation, with a particularly sharp eye for the varied ways in which Hellenism expresses itself in epistolary form. The greatest delight of this book however, is the generous quantity of elegantly translated quotation with which chapter is enriched, allowing the reader his or her own direct contact with the letters and their writers and worlds … It is impossible not to be hooked by one or another of this extraordinarily varied gallery of perspectives, if not by all of them in turn.’ – The Anglo-Hellenic Review
