    schema:reviewBody ""This book offers an innovative new introduction to ancient Greek literature. It integrates cutting-edge cultural theory with the latest research in classical scholarship, providing a comprehensive, sophisticated and accessible account of literature from Homer at late antiquity. Whitmarsh offers new readings of some of the best-known and most influential authors of Greek antiquity, including Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Aristophanes and Plato, as well as introducing many lesser-known figures. He shows that literature, distributed via a range of social institutions, such as festivals, theatres, symposia and book production, played an important role in the legitimization of ideologies of gender, class and cultural identity." "Ancient Greek Literature will be essential reading for all students of classics. All texts in the volume are translated, and no knowledge of ancient Greek literature is assumed."--Jacket." ;
