Essays on the Classics! (The Great Books Revival) (Volume 1)
Jason R. Goetz, author
A brief introduction to the Great Books and a classical education, this volume has essays on the value of the classics, and on the genres of epic poetry, political philosophy, classical history, memoirs, and non-Shakespearian plays. It looks briefly at five major works in each genre and explores some of the major ideas presented in the individual works as well as in the whole genres.
