Overview of Classical Considerations

The ancients knew that wisdom comes from sharing ideas with each other and with those who have gone before. This book is such a sharing: 53 quotations from ancient Greek and Latin authors, with English translations and accompanied by a brief essay, poem, or explanation of context. Contributors to Classical Considerations are a richly diverse group: classicists, reporters, students, professors, teachers, a psychiatrist, a judge, Vietnam veterans, a publisher, a minister, and a football coach. They show how the words of the ancients have connected with their own understandings of the world. Themes considered include fate, character, art, war, redemption after suffering, and time.
