    Reading this for a graduate school course on the history of ideas, it has served as a pretty solid introduction and review of many classics of western thought. While not complete, it does include some interesting notables, such as Oedipus Rex and Lysistrata, as well as one complete chapter of the Iliad, amongst numerous other readings. While written in 1988, the context for each reading is accurate, interesting, and approachable. Overall, a good introductory text.

    Pretty good stuff. I read this because last fall I took a literature class and found it enjoyable. Although a couple of stories were the same as my class book (different edition), they were actually different parts of the same works.
