Carolyn Dewald, John Marincola, "The Cambridge Companion to Herodotus (Cambridge Companions to Literature)"
Cambridge University Press | 2006-06-08 | ISBN: 0521536839 | 400 pages | PDF | 4,7 MB
Popularly known as the 'Father of History', Herodotus is the first major prose writer in the history of Western literature whose work has survived in full. At a time when the ancient Greeks' knowledge of the past relied on orally transmitted memories, he was a pioneering historical practitioner who explored the interplay of myth and history and the role of narrative in history. Contributors to this volume analyze Herodotus' Histories and their influence. Taking a thematic approach, they explore the Histories and their context, techniques and themes, representation of the Greeks' relationships with foreigners and reception.
