Description
Whether it's the murder of Julius Caesar or the political assassination of Margaret Thatcher; the narrative arc of the HBO Series The Wire or that of Oedipus Rex; the popular enthusiasm for the emperor Titus or for President Obama, we can find endless parallels between the ancient and modern worlds. As British classicist, radio host, and comedian Natalie Haynes advises in this witty and insightful book, our lives could be infinitely richer if we take the time to look at what the Greeks and Romans have given us in politics and law, philosophy and education, and to learn how people really lived in Athens, Rome, Sparta, and Alexandria.
