Lucian

$ 2.99

Lucian of Samosata is celebrated for lively and original satires, which demonstrate his cynical wit and critical interpretation of Greek literature.  Well-regarded for his Attic purity and the elegance of his Greek, Lucian is now recognised as one of the first true modern innovators of literature. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts.  For the first time in digital publishing, this comprehensive eBook presents Lucian’s complete extant works, with beautiful illustrations, rare translations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
