Description
The Greeks and the Romans certainly didn't invent civilization, notes Caroline Taggart, but they did have a profound influence on Western culture as we now know it—or think we do. We remember that Hannibal crossed the Alps with elephants, although we are a bit vague on who Hannibal was; we've heard of Homer, Sophocles, and Cicero without actually having read their stuff; and we know that Julius Caesar was supposed to beware the Ides of March, even if we haven't a clue when the Ides were. Leading us through Latin and Greek, logic and philosophy, natural sciences, art and architecture, poetry and drama, and history and classical literature, Taggart aims to fill in some of the gaps in our knowledge about the classics—with perhaps a few laughs along the way. Perfect for the student as well as for the former student who can now better appreciate the value of the lessons, the book is presented in a printed laminated cover that fits nicely in the hand.
