Read full description of the books:



For most of us classical writing is little more than a narrow circle of legendary figures; but behind the familiar work of Homer, Aeschylus, Plato, Virgil, and Saint Augustine lies a vast fellowship of writers with a common mythological and artistic heritage. The Norton Book of Classical Literature includes not only the "greats" but also significant but lesser-known figures and traditions: archaic lyric poets, Alexandrian Greeks, and Roman satirists, for example. The translations selected for this collection, ranging from classic nineteenth-century versions to as-yet-unpublished manuscripts, reflect the diversity of the works themselves and bring them to us with eloquence and clarity.
From the lyrical precision of Archilochus and Sappho to the epic sweep of Apollonius and Virgil; from the storytelling genius of Herodotus and Ovid to the philosophical ruminations of Marcus Aurelius; from the sobering histories of Thucydides and Tacitus to the satires of Petronius and Juvenal; from the tantalizing papyrus fragments only recently unearthed to the complete Antigone--The Norton Book of Classical Literature revives what for many of us has become a lost tradition.
