Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Edith Hamilton's Mythology is non-fiction, not historical fiction, as is her The Greek Way.

ETA: Plutarch is non-fiction biography, as is Mary Renault's The Nature of Alexander.

Alicja Ha, I knew that. I meant fiction and then I just put everything Greek in there. Thanks!


message 4: by BookLovingLady (last edited Dec 01, 2016 08:39AM) (new)

BookLovingLady I've added some ancient Greek plays, although I'm not sure they'll count, as strictly speaking they don't qualify as fiction, as plays normally form a category of their own... But then again, Homer's The Iliad/The Odyssey is on the list and these are epic poems. And Sappho is on the list as well with her poetry. Both books have been voted for by the creator of this list, so I'm guessing ancient Greek plays are okay too...?


message 5: by Kronk (new)

Kronk Has anyone read an adventure novel set in Greece or Rome maybe, it involved a boy meeting a greek wrestler who competed in Olympia or something? and there were some pirates after them too, and the wrestler guy got injured at one point. Does anyone remember the name of this book?
