9780140440072 - The Persian Expedition (Penguin Classics) by Xenophon

ISBN 10: 0140440070

Paperback; London: Penguin Classics, June 30, 1950;

Xenophon was an Athenian country gentleman born about 430 BC. He may have helped to publish Thucydides’ History , and certainly wrote his own Hellenica as a continuation of it. By his own (probably reliable) account he was a fine officer and outstanding leader, but his admiration for Sparta and devotion to Socrates, among other causes, led to his banishment. He was given an estate at Scillus and settled down to enjoy the life of a landed aristocrat, and it was during this period that he began to write histories, biographies, memoirs and specialist treatises. The defeat of Sparta in 371 forced him to move to Corinth where he probably lived for the rest of his life. Rex Warner was a Professor of the University of Connecticut from 1964 until his retirement in He was born in 1905 and went to Wadham College, Oxford, where he gained a ‘first’ in Classical Moderations, and took a degree in English Literature. He taught in Egypt and England, and was Director of the British Institute, Athens, from 1945 to 1947. He has written poems, novels and critical essays, has worked on films and broadcasting, and has translated many works, of which Xenophon’s History of My Time and The Persian Expedition , Thucydides’ The Peloponnesian War , and Plutarch’s Lives (under the title Fall of the Roman Republic ) and Moral Essays have been published in Penguin Classics. George Cawkwell is a Fellow and Praelector in Ancient History of University College, Oxford. He has specialized in the history of the fourth century B.C.
