Classics in Translation,
Edited by Paul L. MacKendrick and Herbert M. Howe
"A stimulating comprehensive survey of classical antiquity."
Here, translated into modern idiom, are many works of the authors whose ideas have constituted the mainstream of classical thought. This volume of new translations was born of necessity, to answer the needs of a course in Greek and Roman culture offered by the Department of Integrated Liberal Studies at the University of Wisconsin. Since its original publication, in 1952, Classics in Translation has been adopted by many different academic institutions to fill similar needs of their undergraduate students. This new printing is further evidence of this collection's general acceptance by teachers, sudents, and the reviewing critics.
"The distinctive feature of these two volumes is the fact that the translations are new and in contemporary English."Quarterly Journal of Speech
"Attractive, well-organized, and stimulating."
"A valuable addition to any private library."
The Classical Journal
"Much superior to any previous anthologies of the kind."The Journal of General Education
