Product description

The writings of Herodotus, historian, observer, and delightful storyteller, have long been favorites among teachers and students of the Greek language. The selections in this book will provide reading in the second year for the student who has begun his or her Greek with Homer and who presumably has had no acquaintance with Attic Greek. The book is equally well fitted for the use of the student who has begun in the orthodox fashion with Attic Greek and followed it by Homer. This second Oklahoma edition is enhanced by Megan O. Drinkwater's addition of chapter and section references to the complete works of Herodotus.

Review quote

"A handsome edition. . . . The difficult task of selection is well done and the introduction has a very full account of the dialect and syntax of Herodotus, as well as valuable sections on his life, writings, and style."--"Classical Review"
