GREEK LIVES Lycurgus, Themistocles, Pericles, Alexander, Demosthenes, and Others

by | Read by Nicholas Farrell, Steve Hodson

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Abridged • ©

Nicholas Farrell reads with grace and gravitas this ancient account of Greek figures. Plutarch, a Greek writer of the first and early second centuries C.E., authored PARALLEL LIVES OF GREEK AND ROMANS, containing 46 biographical portraits of significant Greeks and Romans. This audiobook presents lives of eight prominent Greeks (Lycurgus, Themistocles, Pericles, Alcibiades, Lysander, Alexander, Demosthenes, and Pyrrhus) in chronological order. The text is formal as it is an 1864 revision of an English translation from the 1780s, but Farrell handles it well, never faltering on rarely used words and unfamiliar syntax. M.L.C.
