Note to Readers: Please omit the bibliographies given at the end of each chapter. Also note that the abbreviation fl. c. is used frequently in this work. It means the approximate time during which an author was active, and should be read as "floruit circa.""The Greeks were the most intellectual people of the old world. … The study of Greek literature is therefore a proper element in a liberal education. The Greek language, naturally flexible and rich in poetical words, becomes in the hands of the great writers a medium of unequalled force, clearness, and adaptability, able to express as well the highest aspirations of the poet as the subtlest shades of philosophical argument or the most abstruse technicalities. The books of Greece have passed the critical selection of the ages, and the student, unencumbered by masses of inferior material, can approach the works of acknowledged masters, the true fountain-head of European culture." (From the Introduction)
