137 books of Xenophon

This is a highly entertaining and charming work by Xenophon. In the backdrop of a party that is going wild the work features Socrates though not many dialogues are spoken by him. The constant allusion to Platos Symposium makes the work engrossing and hilarious.

Hellenica is Xenophon's chronicle of the history of the Greeks, or the "Hellenes" from 411 to 359 BCE. It is a continuation of Thucydides' narrative, History of the Peloponnesian War. This history covers the last seven years of the war, and its aftermath. It is one of the few surviving narratives from this period and is generally considered to be the most authoritative.

The author Xenophon was born in Athens about 430BCE. It may be inferred from passages in the Hellenica that he fought at Arginusae (406), and that he was present at the return of Alcibiades (408), the trial of the Generals, and the overthrow of the Thirty.

In 401, being invited by his friend Proxenus to join the expedition of the younger Cyrus against his brother, Artaxerxes II of Persia, he at once accepted the offer. Of the expedition itself, he has given a full and detailed account in his Anabasis: The March Up Country, sometimes called The Persian Expedition.

At Coroneia (394) he fought with the Spartans . . .

Written in the early fourth century BCE by a gentleman and soldier from Athens, "Cyropaedia" is an account of Cyrus the Great that escapes a simple genre placement. It is a sort of historical, political, biographical, fictional romance, encapsulating the sweeping type of narrative characteristic of Xenophon's works. The overall portrait of Cyrus is artistic, offering glimpses of this huge figure's character. Organized into eight books, the entire life of Cyrus the Great is told, from his descent and education to his stay in the Median court, and eventually his own kingship and monarchical views. Considered an important piece of literature by many historical figures, from Edmund Spenser to the Founding Fathers, "Cyropaedia" is an ancient text that contains a timeless relevance.

This English-­Greek translation is interleaved in small sections allowing the student to quickly cross reference Greek terms to their English equivalents.

"Xenophon's Hellenica furnishes us with a contemporary record of a considerable and important period of Greek History - from the autumn of 411 to the summer of 362 - in all nearly forty-­nine years. It begins in the middle of the twenty first year of the Peloponnesian War, at the point - or more exactly within a few weeks of the point - where Thucydides' unfinished work suddenly breaks off. It ends with the battle of Mantinea, wherein the Spartans suffered a crushing defeat, and the Thebans left their hero Epaminondas dead upon the field. With the loss of their leader Theban supremacy was at an end; Spartan power sank never to rise to prominence again; the general result for Greece was ἀκρισία [δὲ] καὶ ταραχή (confusion and . . .
