A Handbook of Greek Literature: From Homer to the Age of Lucian
Product Code: 3219
Availability: In stock.
Rose's Handbook is a brief, accurate account of Greek literature in the light of modern knowledge. Like his A Handbook of Latin Literature, the book is a continuous narrative, complete in itself and assuming no previous acquaintance with Greek writings. It aims at including every author, from Homer to Lucian, who was Greek in both language and spirit.

...still remains the best short history of Greek literature in English...
Review: Midwest Book Review - September 30, 2005
Rose is scholarly, thorough in presentation, and highly accessible in his text. A Handbook Of Greek Literature is the ideal introduction for students of Greek literature and the nonspecialist general reader to become acquainted with the basics of our Hellenic literary legacy.
