  • Götter, Mythen, Philosophenby Fabio Berdozzo

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 196.00

    One of Lucian?s main topics is the critical observation of religious life. His criticism of religious ideas, however, takes place exclusively as dispute with the forms and models of literary tradition.

  • Three Playsby Euripides

    Penguin Books Ltd 2005; US$ 12.78

    One of the greatest playwrights of Ancient Greece, the works of Euripides (484-406 BC) were revolutionary in their depiction of tragic events caused by flawed humanity, and in their use of the gods as symbols of human nature. The three plays in this collection show his abilities as the sceptical questioner of his age. Alcestis, an early drama, tells... more...
