Harry Mount's odyssey : ancient Greece in the footsteps of Odysseus
Mount, Harry, 1971-2016
Articles
Architecture, art, sculpture, economics, mathematics, science, metaphysics, comedy, tragedy, drama and epic poetry were all devised and perfected by the Greeks. Of the four classical orders of architecture, three were invented by the Greeks and the fourth, the only one the Romans could come up with, was a combination of two of the former. The powerful ghost of ancient Greece still lingers on in the popular mind as the first great civilization and one of the most influential in the creation of modern thought. It is the starting block of Western European civilization. In this book, Harry Mount tells the story of ancient Greece while on the trail of its greatest son, Odysseus.
