Description
This fun little book is a boon for former students who are now a little foggy on why Cicero was such a big name in ancient Rome. The author of I Used to Know That, Caroline Taggart gives us breezy, opinionated capsule biographies and summaries of the classical world, from Atlas to Aphrodite, hedonism to stoicism, Horace to Homer, and from the Seven Hills of Rome to the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. (And if you can't name them—the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Pharos of Alexandria, the Colossus of Rhodes, and the rest—then you are probably just the sort of former student to whom we are speaking.) 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.
