Introduction by G.T.Griffith
Plutarch's 'Lives' of the Greek statesman and men of action were designed to pair with the now better-known Roman portraits and contain many of his finest descriptions of war, revolution and heroic achievement.
They include studies of Demothenes and Phocion, the leading Athenian orators; of Agelsiaus, the Spartan King, and Pelopidas, the Theban military hero; of Dion and Timoleon, the 'liberators' of Sicily; and, above all of three generals - Demetrius 'the Besieger', Pyrrhus and Alexander the great.
