SAILING THE WINE-DARK SEA Why the Greeks Matter

by | Read by Olympia Dukakis

History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

A fascinating book, wonderfully read, this is the fourth in Cahill's Hinges of History series. Olympia Dukakis reads with great feeling, clarity, and an even pace. Her familiar voice brings alive the many thoughtful observations about Greek life and culture and how much they have influenced our own day. Cahill's accounts of Homer and other ancients are particularly good, and there are excellent insights into Greek tragedy. Cahill's language is not that of the professional historian, and Dukakis captures the playfulness and excitement in his writing. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
