A brief heritage of Greek Literature presents a concise but entire survey of Greek literature - from Christian authors - over twelve centuries, from Homer's epics to the wealthy variety of authors surviving from the imperial interval as much as Justinian. The publication is split into 3 elements. the 1st half is dedicated to the extreme creativity of the archaic and classical age, whilst the most important literary genres - epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, historical past, oratory and philosophy - have been invented and flourished. the second one half covers the Hellenistic interval, and the 3rd covers the excessive Empire and past due Antiquity. At that tine the masters of the former age have been increased to the rank of 'classics'. The works of the imperial interval are replete with literary allusions, but jam-packed with references to modern reality.
