Rich and rewarding,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Classics: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I loved Mary Beard's work after seeing her on TV. Got this out of curiosity and thoroughly enjoyed reading it...and, will enjoy revisiting it as well. She takes a simple idea...going to a museum....and within a couple of paragraphs has enmeshed you in an exciting mix of current, past and ancient views. Soon you're in ancient Greece, London, past and present.
Although a short book, it is a rich read.
