#really caught my #caught my and fired me up about the Greeks Kitto has a truly infectious Hoist On My Own Petard love of the era and the people to whom we owe so much of what we now call our civilization Always interesting at times he takes my breath away and brings tears to my eyes How I would haveoved to have him as a teacher To him I trace my passion for The Iliad and my ove for Homer in general I also gained an appreciation for how terse an expressive anguages can be which have many cases Word order becomes uite free and allows emphasis to be placed easily since the place of subject object direct object etc are noted by these declensions An example in English might be the ineThey run from me that sometime did me seekIt s uite expressive to end with and emphasize the word seek
here which is only possible because me is automatically the object being sought In English we retain a fewwhich is only possible because me is automatically the object being sought In English we retain a few these cases in pronouns only Languages ike Greek and Russian I just discovered have them on many words including nouns adjectives etc It gives them the ability to express things very powerfully and conciselyAnyway this is one of my favorite books of all time and I m so grateful to Kitto for introducing me to and infecting me with his ove of the Hellenic world Reviewed for The BibliophibianThis book is kind of outdated in its information and definitely so in many of its attitudes but nonetheless it remains a bit of a classic I think that s mostly because of the author s sheer enthusiasm for the people about whom he writes their and and their customs I studied Athenian democracy in excruciating detail for a Classics A Level but Kitto manages to actually get excited about it to show all the best things about it and the way the Greeks behaved and thought It s mostly about the Athenians honestly you can consider the two basically synonymous in this book Kitto does talk about the Spartans for instance but with significantly ess approval and interestKitto s style is mostly engaging due to his enthusiasm but I do warn that he uotes extensively from various sources rather than summarising them he ets them stand for themselves to illustrate his points this can get tiresomeJust as a warning though if you Marvelous brief witty but serious introduction to ancient Greece Kitto is obviously in ove with his subject and his enthusiasm carries his readers with him The author is an old fashioned no nonsense cultivated man who eavens the book with waspish asides and donnish humour He isn t afraid of expounding partisan views or to argue against what seems to be widely accepted points of view He argues that the notion that the slavery that existed in Greece resembled our modern idea of slavery is nonsense that the idea Greeks disdained all manual occupations is false as was the idea that Greek women were kept in a state of Oriental seclusion and were treated contemptuously by the men He covers much of the history and culture of ancient Greece Hmm What is there to say about a 1950 s book that deals with the ancient Athenians and a few other related peoplesThe first thing to note is that it is outdated it doesn t even take account of The Decipherment of Linear B which was I suppose breaking news as Kitto was writing Well he has a good guess that those Mycenaean tablets would be administrative documents so perhaps his preference to abide with Homer is understandable but a comparison with Oswyn Murray s slightly recent Early Greece brings out some substantive differences much Amulet Of Power The Lost Amulet Chronicles 2 less archaeology no anthropological perspectives a tendency to take the sources at face value even in the case of Thucydid.
