really liked it
Read from March 18 to 20, 2011 — I own a copy

Confront the sorrows of Electra, Oedipus, Clytemnestra and Antigone, woven threadbare at the seams in a chapter or two, and you're guaranteed to become an emotional wreck upon closing the book (yes, that's the part I liked best). Ah, Greek Tragedy and Edith Hamilton.

Quotes Tracy Liked

Edith Hamilton
“It is by our power to suffer, above all, that we are of more value than the sparrows.”
Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way

Edith Hamilton
“When conditions are such that life offers no earthly hope, somewhere somehow, men must find refuge. Then they fly from the terror without to the citadel within, which famine and pestilence and fire and sword cannot shake. What Goethe calls the inner universe, can live by its own laws, create its own security, be sufficient unto itself, when once reality is denied to the turmoil of the world without.”
Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way
