Why do we still read Ancient Greek Literature? What is so great about Homer? Where was Philosophy born? Why is Greek Tragedy so appealing? Who was Herodotus? When did the Hellenistic Age begin? In these pages you will find the answers to these questions and many more besides. Backed by the experience of a long academic career teaching classical languages and cultures, Nicholas Debono Montebello has written these essays which, in their conciseness and comprehensiveness, are especially useful for students of the Arts, as well as for readers who are interested in the unique legacy of Ancient Greece.
