The Greek Way
Date: July 2010
Duration: 8 hours 29 minutes
The aim of this work is not a history of events but an account of the achievement and spirit of Greece.
“What the Greeks discovered, how they brought a new world to birth out of the dark confusions of an old world that had crumbled away, is full of meaning for us today who have seen an old world swept away.”
In The Greek Way, Edith Hamilton shares the fruits of her thorough study of Greek life, literature, philosophy, and art. She interprets their meaning and brings us a realization of the refuge and strength the past can offer us in the troubled present. Hamilton’s book has taken its place among the few interpretative volumes that are permanently rooted and profoundly alive in our literature.
