Description:

Originally published in 1914, this book examines Thucydides' prose style and the literary influences affecting him at the time that he wrote his famous History of the Peloponnesian War. Through the examination of a great deal of contemporary literature, philosophical dialogues, speeches and theatre, Lamb scrutinises specific passages in the History to discover the inspiration behind each and how each influence can be seen in Thucydides' writing. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Thucydides or ancient historiography.
