The second part focuses on Greek influences on art, architecture and society. All of the great temples, building and sculptures also make their appearances in beautiful glossies. In context, we learn about Greek legends and myths of Greek gods from Athena to Zeus, and from Aphrodite to Apollo. We get the stories of the lives and works of great Greek writers and historians from Plato and Homer to Aristotle.
For those looking for a quick short entertaining review of what the years have washed away from memory, this litle book is difficult to improve upon. Four stars.
and a package of 2-part epoxy later, the book is whole again.
