The Democracy of the Dead: Ancient Greece
Hesiod. Homer. Aristotle. Plato. Aeschylus. These are the men set at the foundation of Western civilization. Incorporating poetry, philosophy, history, and theology, this anthology collects some of the most important authors and works from Ancient Greece, and it brings it to us anew. By studying these works, we ensure ongoing vitality for the very important, though all too often neglected, "democracy of the dead." Written for a one-year Humanities course for seventh grade, this anthology is an excellent reader for home school and classical school students.
