New review: The Greeks, by Kenneth Dover

Kenneth Dover was probably the foremost Greek scholar of his generation (he died in 2010 at the age of 89). In this book he provides an introduction to a number of aspects of Greek life. He was writing for an audience that is unfamiliar with the classics; the book arose from the author's two-year participation in the making of a set of television programmes about the ancient Greeks. It does not attempt to cover every aspect of its subject (how could it?) but it gives a remarkably vivid impression of how the Greeks felt and thought about life.More
