The section on Greek Tragedy is worth the price of the book by itself. Having reread the discussion on the Tragedy of Oedipus several times, I find it both difficult and stimulating, getting me to haul out the old tomes I have from college days, particularly the plays of Sophocles (I have started on "Oedipus the King"}.One of the signs of a good book is that it makes you want to read others on the subject.
I urge you to buy and read this book. You will find it very stimulating and enjoyable and will want to add it to your permanent library.
Goldhill does a wonderful job of making the connections from the classical world to our world. His insights does indeed help us tackle our often quite confusing contemporary world a little better. Historical knowledge is always useful! Here it is even entertaining! :-)
