Publisher's Synopsis

This is the last in a set of four texts, two of which have already been used in the classroom and refined in the light of feedback both general and specific. This volume concentrates on historiography. These editions are designed for post-beginners in Greek and other learners wishing to consolidate their reading skills. Particular attention is paid to idiomatic usage (both in Greek and English), word order and the use of particles and particle-combinations, while practical guidance is given on mastering the verbal systems and other features of the language which beginners generally find problematic. The four units may be studied in succession as part of a progressive course, but each unit is sufficiently self-contained to permit the pursuit of particular interests.The course comprises: Unit 1 Forensic Oratory - Lysias: On the Murder of EratosthenesUnit 2 Philosophy - Plato: CritoUnit 3 Political Oratory - Demosthenes: Third PhilippicUnit 4 Historiography - Thucydides: Events at Pylos and Sphacteria.
