Happy New Year with...a Happy New Book!

The Ancient Guide to Modern Life 
  • Natalie Haynes 
  • ISBN-13: 9781590208502


    Overview

    In this thoroughly engaging book, Natalie Haynes brings her scholarship and wit to the most fascinating true stories of the ancient world. The Ancient Guide to Modern Life not only reveals the origins of our culture in areas including philosophy, politics, language, and art, it also draws illuminating connections between antiquity and our present time, to demonstrate that the Greeks and Romans were not so different from ourselves: is Bart Simpson the successor to Aristophanes? Do the Beckhams have parallel lives with The Satiricon's Trimalchio?

    Editorial Reviews


    Associated Press Staff
    A constantly amusing but quite serious book!
    Times Literary Supplement
    A romp through some of the best-known, and some of the more obscure, writers, thought, and stories of Greece and Rome.
    My review...
    An amusing and inspiring piece of work not only for people of classic taste - Go and read it!
