LNC Posted January 18, 2011 Share Posted January 18, 2011 I'm compiling a list for ancients next year. This will primarily be for my own self-education, but I'm anticipating my 7th grader will listen with me to several longer works and read several plays. I want to own these for their use in the future also. Teaching helps : WTM WEM Invitation to the Classics Heroes of the City of Man, Leithart online guides Epic of Gilgamesh (Ferry) Iliad/Odyssey (Fagles w/audio) Aeschylus, The Oresteia (Fagles) Herodotus, Histories (Strassler) Sophocles:Three Theban Plays (Fagles) Euripides:Bachae (Vellacott) Aristophanes: Birds (Moses Hadas) Plato, The Republic (Sterling/Scott) Aristotle Nichomachean Ethics (in Introduction to Aristotle, McKeon) Greek Lyrics, (Lattimore) Virgil Aeneid, (Fagles w/audio - that's why not Fitzgerald!) Plutarch's Lives - Greek Lives and Roman Lives (Waterfield) Athanasius, On the Introduction (want to find OOP w/ C.S. Lewis intro) Josephus:Essential Works (Maier) Eusebius: The Church History (Maier) 16 works but several are short plays. Is there anything you would change? Thanks!
