    ePUB Ἠθικά PDF Ù ↠ smrl.me Ἠθικά kindle, Ἠθικά PDFEPUBIt is very practical to have this collection of Plutarch’s Lives focusing on Sparta presented together in one volume and I find I’d much rather read Plutarch’s own texts than have them presented rehashed by contemporary scholars I read in the new Preface that the Life of Agesilaus has been added to this Expanded Edition which is great – though it would have been even better if the Life of Lysander had been added as well I don’t see the point of leaving it out other than selling books of course Obviously there are good reasons for presenting the Lives by period and theme as is done in this Penguin Classics series but there’s also a problematic side to pr

Well yes I wouldn't have guessed it before picking it up but Plutarch is a page turner In this updated collection of Ian Scott Kilvert's original translation of Spartan Lives for Penguin Richard Talbert adds the Life of Agesilaus as well as revisions to the original translation The result is a highly readable not like the free translations you can find online that are often archaic and difficult to follow At least for this modern brain On Sparta includes the lives of Lycurgus Sparta's lawgiver Agesilaus Agis and Cleomenes as well as Spartan sayings and Xeonophon's Spartan Society The Lives themselves read like something out of George Martin's Song of Ice and Fire political intrigue assassinations coups d'etat manufactured wars betrayals But behind all the grittiness Plutarch shows some examples of true honour His approval of Sparta

It was after all a slave society in which women were relegated to a subordinate role In its favor great literature great philosophy except that they executed Socrates great architecture and statuary This year I have decided to concentrate heavily on books about Ancient Greece and by Ancient Greek authors To ensure that I do not unwittingly accept historical prejudices I decided to st

Spartan swords are short too but they reach their enemy all the same As Plutarch notes in the book the relationship between brevity and value runs through Spartan life Lycurgus we
