The Sea! the Sea! Summary

The Sea! the Sea!: The Shout of the Ten Thousand in the Modern Imagination by Tim Rood

'Thalatta! Thalatta!' ('The Sea! The Sea'), was the shout first uttered on a mountain in eastern Turkey by the famous Ten Thousand, the army of Greek mercenaries whose adventures in what are now Turkey, Syria and Iraq were described by the Athenian historian and philosopher Xenophon, himself a participant in their long march to the coast. Their shout has had an extraordinary afterlife, playing a persistent part in Western cultural tradition over the last two hundred years.

The Sea! the Sea! Reviews

"'There will be no reader, I confidently predict, who won't be taken aback at the sheer variety of Xenophon's heritage...and who won't be delighted by the highways and byways of such a journey.' Simon Goldhill, BMCR '... takes an honourable place among studies of that perennially fascinating theme, the reinterpretation by the modern world of ancient Greece.' Tom Holland, TLS"
