Summary:

"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 and civilization, Greek 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. Miss Hamilton's book must take its place with the few interpretative volumes which are permanently rooted and profoundly alive in our literature.

"At last, a landmark recording of Hamilton's magnificent, in-depth overview of Greek life, civilization, literature, art, theater, rhetoric, and history, making this key work of cultural and critical significance available to the audio generation....This program is well read by Nadia May." -Library Journal
