Editorial Reviews


‘John Lewis’s Solon the Thinker contains a careful reading of the poetic fragments of Solon – not as poetry, but as political thought. Lewis’s interpretation of these poems provides one with a greater understanding and appreciation of the political views of Solon ... and his place in the history of ideas. Anyone interested in early Greek discussions of the polis, justice, tyranny, slavery, and freedom should find this book worthwhile reading.’

About the Author
