Of Gods and Men : 100 Stories from Ancient Greece and Rome

Of Gods and Men : 100 Stories from Ancient Greece and Rome

Daisy Dunn  (Author)
Daisy Dunn offers a deeply researched collection of stories reflecting the eclectic richness and depth of the classical literary canon.

Striking a balance between the ´classic classic´ (such as Dryden´s translation of the Aeneid) and the less familiar or expected, Of Gods and Men ranges from the epic poetry of Homer to the histories of Arrian and Diodorus Siculus and the sprawling Theogony of Hesiod; from the tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides to the biographies of Suetonius and Plutarch and the pen portraits of Theophrastus; and from the comedies of Plautus to the the fictions of Petronius and Apuleius.

Of Gods and Men is embellished by translations from writers as diverse as Queen Elizabeth I (Boethius), Percy Bysshe Shelley (Plato), Walter Pater (Apuleius´s Golden Ass), Lawrence of Arabia (Homer´s Odyssey), Louis MacNeice (Aeschylus´s Agamemnon) and Ted Hughes (Ovid´s Pygmalion), as well as a number of accomplished translations by Daisy herself.
