Description

Burn makes quite a lot of aesthetic value judgements in the book that feel a bit out of place in a history. It's an interesting counterbalance, though, a reminder that Greece is just as important in art as in philosophy or the history of countries and empires.

Burn makes quite a lot of aesthetic value judgements in the book that feel a bit out of place in a history. To tell that history you have to make (or report) judgements about the qualities of works of art, and the values they represent. The book is, not unreasonably, a lot more interested in Athens than Sparta or other areas, leading to some significant gaps

If, then, the Pelican History was a success, and much of it was, it owed little to a conscious attempt at coherence imposed from above.

If, then, the Pelican History was a success, and much of it was, it owed little to a conscious attempt at coherence imposed from above. Coherence came rather from the common understanding of the English national past (the 'Whig' interpretation of history in the strict sense) which was diffused through all levels of the cultural community – writers, teachers, readers.

Well written and easy to read, unlike any other history book I've encountered.

Last revised, according to the Foreword p. 14, in 1984 A.R. Burn's "The Penguin (or Pelican) History of Greece" is an excellent middle length (well under 400 Penguin pages of text) one volume history of ancient Greece. It is accessible and well written and sectioned to read in easy stages. A cheap and easily available paperback it deserves updating and reprinting as an alternative to outrageously expensive university level ancient histories!
