E-Book: The Men Who Changed the Face of Athens
Plutarch's Parallel Lives
This installment of the Classical Wisdom book series will focus on several interconnected ideas which illuminate probably the most interesting and important period of Greek – certainly Athenian – history.
This newest E-book takes a deep, but diverse, dive into the topic of fifth century BC Athenian hegemony in the Aegean Sea and how this came about due to the formation, and Athens’ manipulation, of the Delian League.
Moreover, Plutarch's Parallel Lives are of high historical, not to mention, entertainment, value and have been of huge interest and influence throughout the ages. Indeed, it is often thought that Plutarch was the key source used by William Shakespeare in his character portrayals for some of his historical tragedies.
Focusing on Themistocles, Aristides, Cimon and Pericles, readers will come away with a greater understanding… and appreciation of the men who changed the Face of Athens and the Athenian Golden Age.
