Greek Studies

£20.00

Product description

A brilliant Greek scholar born in Sydney, Australia, Gilbert Murray (1866 - 1957) was Regius professor of Greek at Oxford 1908-36. His claim to brilliance lay in his ability to make the ancient world sensitively real to his contemporaries; and while he produced influential studies in Greek epic and drama, he is best remembered for his translations of Euripides. He was the model for Adolphus Cusins in Shaw's Major Barbara. Murray was an eloquent champion of women's rights and other liberal causes, and as chairman of the League of Nations Union (1922-38) he struggled without much hope to save Europe from war.
Oxford University Press 1946 hardcover edition - no dust jacket. Green covers w/ gilt lettering on the spine. Corners and spine top/bottom edges worn out. Tanned pages. Christmas gift dedication dated 1946 written in black ink on the first page. Good binding.
