Product Overview

Offers a better way to read Thucydides through the explanation of grammar and a glimpse into the history of classical scholarship The thought of Thucydides is complex, and this is often reflected in his prose style. Accordingly, students coming to Thucydides for the first time require the guidance of a commentary suited to their needs. The strength of Cameron's commentary, as the title indicates, lies in his explication of grammatical issues. However, Cameron does not simply label the construction and refer the student to a grammar; rather, he explains the grammar and frequently provides parallels, so that the student not only is better equipped to read Thucydides but has a better grasp of the Greek language in general. In addition to these pedagogical merits, Cameron's commentary gives the reader a glimpse into the history of classical scholarship, referring to the work of such giants as J.J. Reiske, among others.
