This wonderful book contains a translation of Plutarch's 'Lives' told in simple language with a special topic index. Plutarch's seminal work upon which this text is based, provided an illustration of Greece and Rome that has been immortalised in the works of Shakespeare and of Goldsmith; a picture of Greece and Rome which no research or criticism has ever quite been able to dissipate. Written in clear, concise language, this wonderful text makes for a great addition to any personal library, and is one not to be missed by the discerning collector. The chapters of this book include: The Hardy Men of Sparta, The Wise Men of Athens, The Just Man, The Savior of Athens, The Admiral of the Fleet, The Man who Made Athens Beautiful, Three Powers, The Man With many Faces, In Olden Persia, A Lame King... as well as others. This antiquarian volume is now republished complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
