Description

This book presents a joyous tribute to the diversity, beauty and achievement of the Hellenic Isles. Greece's contributions to the Western world are as varied as its geography, as lively as its culture and as significant as its history. To know Greece is to know diversity: the bustling streets of Athens; rocky Aegean isles; lush olive groves - a people who gave birth to Western thought, law and philosophy; to classical ideals of theatre, art and architecture. Here are Euripedes' tragedies, Aristophanes' comedies and Nia Vardalos's "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", the biggest grossing independent film and one of the most successful romantic comedies of all time. Here is Homer and his Odyssey; the panoply of Greek gods and myth; the wisdom of Plato, Aristotelean logic - here, too, are the catchy rhythms of the nation's music, the lusty zest of its dances and the sweet savours of its food. Few countries have bequeathed so much to the modern world. This volume pays tribute to that legacy - and to the vibrant nation that is Greece today!
