A basic but enjoyable introduction to the study of the culture of the ancient Greeks and Romans, from the languages to literature, philosophy, art, and much moreFor those who didn't take Classics at school, or who have forgotten most of what they knew, this primer is a look back at classical civilization—how they lived, and how many aspects of our own daily lives have been directly influenced by theirs, from roads and concrete, to central heating, the 12-month calendar, cranes, and even pizza. It covers Greek and Latin languages; offers Greek and Roman history in a nutshell from the Bronze Age through the fall of the Roman empire; provides an introduction to Greek literature including The Iliad, The Odyssey, and the Greek tragedies; and covers the basics of Latin literature. It also provides basic background on philosophy, including Socrates and Plato; ancient architecture including the Parthenon and the Colosseum; and science and technology, including such inventions as the alarm clock, the vending machine, flushing toilets, and glass. This handy book shows that even a basic knowledge of Classics is not only essential, but also incredibly fascinating.
