Podrobný popis:

Publikace: THE EXPEDITION OF CYRUS (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - XENOPHON. A new translation of Xenophon's most famous work in which he

describes the epic march of the Ten Thousand after the defeat of

the Persian prince Cyrus, and their cry of 'The sea! The sea!' as

they reach the coast on their journey home to Greece. For many

years famous as a school text, The Expedition of Cyrus is here

translated afresh by the experienced translator Robin Waterfield

(translator of Herodotus' Histories and Plato's Republic). The

edition is the first to draw on new scholarly approaches to

Xenophon and the relations between the Greek world and the Persian

empire. Lively introduction by Tim Rood discusses the historical

background, Xenophon's motives for writing the account, critical

approaches to the text, and the book's fame and afterlife. Full

notes and bibliography are the most critically up-to-date

available. Includes map and index of names. 'Men, the enemy troops

you can see are all that stands between us and the place we have

for so long been determined to reach. We must find a way to eat

them alive!' The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the march

of the Ten Thousand. The exploits of this famous army of Greek

mercenaries in modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq were described by

one of their leaders, the Athenian historian and philosopher

Xenophon. They were recruited at the end of the fifth century BC by

a young Persian prince, Cyrus, who rose in revolt against his

brother, the king of Persia. After Cyrus' death, the army was left

stranded in the desert of Mesopotamia, a thousand miles from home.

Their long march, across mountains and plateaux to the sight of

'The sea! The sea!', and back to the fringes of the Greek world, is

the most exciting adventure story to survive from the ancient

world. Xenophon's gripping narrative offers a unique insight into

the character of a Greek army struggling to survive in an alien

world. It is also the most sustained eyewitness account of the

landscape of the vast and wealthy Persian empire. Readership:

Persian history, classical studies Publikace: THE EXPEDITION OF CYRUS (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - XENOPHON. Kniha napsaná v cizým jazyce. Je velmi čtivá. Vhodná i pro trénování cizího jazyka. nové vydání klasické anglické četby
