Summary:
Climbing Parnassus presents the reader not so much with a program for educational renewal as with a defense and vindication of the formative power of Greek and Latin. Tracy Lee Simmons's persuasive witness to the unique, now all-but-forgotten advantages of study in, and of, the classical languages constitutes a bracing reminder of the genuine aims of a truly liberal education.
