A delightful collection of straightforward prose narratives, divided into 100-word sections. These stories are suitable for intermediate-level Greek students who have seen all or most of the grammar. Vocabulary and appendix of proper names. Because Morice chose characters and incidents from history and mythology, these stories also serve to introduce Ancient Greek culture.
A delightful assortment of passages adapted from or inspired by the work of ancient Greek authors. Updated notes and hints for reading, along with a full vocabulary list at the back, make the book user-friendly for students at the intermediate level of Greek. - Anne Groton, St. Olaf College
