Classics: A Very Short Introduction by Mary Beard

Classics: A Very Short Introduction

by Mary Beard

Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 42 Min.


This very short introduction to classics links a haunting temple on a lonely mountainside to the glory of ancient Greece and the grandeur of Rome, and to classics within modern culture, from Jefferson and Byron to Asterix and Ben-Hur. Critic Edith Hall writes: "Statues and slavery, temples and tragedies, museum, marbles, and mythology, this provocative guide to the classics demystifies its varied subject-matter while seducing the reader with the obvious enthusiasm and pleasure which mark its writing."
