    1 thought on “It's Greek to Me”

    1. "It's Greek to Me" was a fun read for me. I found a copy of it in a used bookstore and bought it on the assumption that its short entries would be a quick, shallow read. To my delight, I found that in addition to a brush-up of classical stories, the book is also a goldmine of etymological phrases from Greek and Latin.Let me divide that statement in half. The main focus--something like 60%--of "It's Greek to Me" is upon telling or retelling familiar stories from the Greek and Roman worlds. For in [...]

    2. When I bought the book the bookseller commented that I would be better off reading the classics themselves rather than this book of snippets. I don't agree - I simply don't have enough time, energy or interest to do that. Besides - this is an excellent introduction to the subject. If I find myself intrigued by any particular book, author or topic I can always look them up later by using the information and references in this volume.As it turns out, this book supplies somewhat more than I need on [...]

    3. I read this before in the 1990's. It is terrific, a reference book about the Greek Classics, Authors and Phrases that is easy to read and makes me feel a little less ignorant. I am rereading it again just to brush up since my daughter is studying the classics at college. Has some cute illustrations also. The book has excerpts of the actual classics (English translation of course), which is what elevates it to 5 stars. One of the best book gifts I ever received, from my friend Paul Christiansen. [...]

    4. It was a fun, worthwhile read. It gives you insight into all those phrases you hear, but aren't 100% sure where they came from.

    5. Readable, bite sized vignettes about standardized catchphrases and their antique back stories: Trojan Horse, Gorian Knot, Marathon, Siren songs, Smell of the lamp, Eureka! and many others.
