Who Killed Homer?: The Demise of Classical Education and the Recovery of Greek Wisdom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Who Killed Homer?" is a blistering indictment of college administrators and classicists who have compromised scholarly standards for both professors and students, from whom deep, rigorous learning is no longer expected.

Synopsis:

Who Killed Homer? is must reading for anyone who agrees that knowledge of classics acquaints us with the beauty and perils of our own culture.
