Based on a thorough study of Greek life & civilization, of Greek literature, philosophy & art, The Greek Way interprets their meaning & brings a realization of the refuge & strength the past can be to us in the troubled present.MoreBased on a thorough study of Greek life & civilization, of Greek literature, philosophy & art, The Greek Way interprets their meaning & brings a realization of the refuge & strength the past can be to us in the troubled present.

Hamiltons book must take its place with the few interpretative volumes which are permanently rooted & profoundly alive in our literature. This is a book of both cultural & critical importance, says The New York Times. In the masterly exposition & deep understanding of the contrast between the Greek & the modern conception of life, we are brought to fresh appraisals of our own intellectual activities.

Her pages are a pleasure to follow. Altogether a notable book.CONTENTS:PrefaceEast & WestMind & SpiritThe Way of the East & the West in Art The Greek Way of WritingPindar, the Last Greek AristocratThe Athenians as Plato Saw Them Aristophanes & the Old Comedy Herodotus, the 1st Sight-Seer Thucydides, the Thing That Hath Been is That Which Shall BeXenophon, Ordinary Athenian Gentleman The Idea of TragedyAeschylus, the 1st Dramatist Sophocles, Quintessence of the Greek Euripides, the Modern MindThe Religion of the GreeksThe Way of the GreeksThe Way of the Modern World
