It's All Greek to Me Summary

It's All Greek to Me by Charlotte Higgins

Consider the way we think: about right and wrong, about the nature of beauty, goodness and truth. What, in the end, it is to be a human being amid the immensity of the universe. What it is to be mortal, to live for a brief while, and die. All this, and more, we have learned from the ancient Greeks. They moulded the basic disiplines and genres in which we still organise thought: from poetry to drama, from politics to philosophy, to medicine and even ethnography. Packed with useful cribs - history timelines; mythology for dummies; even a map for those who struggle to know their Lemnos from their Lesbos - It's All Greek to Me is a bluffer's guide in one sense; but it is much more than that. This book aims to unlock the richness of Greek culture and place it where it should be, in the mainstream of life.
