Greek Poetry and Life: Essays Presented to Gilbert Murray on His Seventieth Birthday, January 2, 1936

Excerpt

GILBERT MURRAY'S seventieth birthday gives an opportunity to his many friends and admirers to offer him some tribute of their esteem and affection. A companion volume to this, published by Messrs. George Allen and Unwin, is a recognition of his place in the world as a poet and dramatist and as a worker for international peace and understanding. This book is offered to him by Oxford scholars, all at some time his colleagues and all in varying degrees his pupils, as a witness to his pre-eminence as a Greek scholar and the recognized leader of Greek studies in England. The essays contained in it deal mainly with Greek Poetry, his own favourite study, but a few are concerned with those wider aspects of Greek thought and life which have always held his sympathy and interest.

The Committee who collected these essays are grateful to all the contributors, and not least to Mr. C. H. Roberts, Fellow of St. John's College, who undertook the task of compiling the index.
