Description


"[S]parkles on every page with apposite and often novel interpretations that shed light where there was darkness. ... It is a model of its kind: a generous, thoughtful, and deeply insightful interpretation of an ancient text, and one that is clear and well written." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"In this stimulating volume Michael Flower provides a comprehensive approach to
Xenophon's Anabasis that greatly enhances our understanding of its narrative art and
historical reliability. It is by far the most intelligent and thoughtful analysis of the
Anabasis now available. ... [Flower] gives us the basics, but he also airs the controversies and makes illuminating suggestions about them for even the most expert among us. There is a strong streak of originality in his analysis, which sets his detailed knowledge of the scholarship of others." --Classical Philology


"...[An] excellent contribution to the Oxford Approaches to Classical Literature series.... This book assuredly fulfills the goals of the...series by being accessible to general readers or students of the author who are approaching the work for the first time, while also being an exercise in criticism and interpretation that will engage scholars in the field. ... This excellent work will need to be read by every graduate student and scholar working on Xenophon...." --Classical Journal
