Description
Classics is the discipline that studies the language, literature, history, and civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, two cultures that bequeathed to the West the greater part of its intellectual, political, and artistic heritage, proclaims classics and humanities professor Bruce Thornton. Despite its falling out of fashion in modern scholarship, he argues, familiarity with classics provides an understanding of the roots of Western culture—the key ideals, characters, stories, images, and concepts that in turn make up a liberal education—as well as the training to exercise the critical awareness necessary for a free citizen in a free republic. Thornton's crisp and informative overview of each of the major poets, dramatists, philosophers, and historians of ancient Greece and Rome includes short bios of major figures and a list of suggested readings and student resources.
