Greek term search can be quickly accomplished using the "Complete Liddell & Scott's Lexicon with Inflections" published by Lighthouse Digital Publishing and also available for the kindle.

Xenophon the Athenian was born 431 B.C. He was a pupil of Socrates. He marched with the Spartans, and was exiled from Athens. Sparta gave him land and property in Scillus, where he lived for many years before having to move once more, to settle in Corinth. He died in 354 B.C.

The Anabasis is his story of the march to Persia to aid Cyrus, who enlisted Greek help to try and take the throne from Artaxerxes, and the ensuing return of the Greeks, in which Xenophon played a leading role. This occurred between 401 B.C. and March 399 B.C.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Like Homer's Odyssey, but non-fiction 29 décembre 2010
Par Matt - Publié sur

This book is a classic in the truest sense of the word! This is a story that has been used to teach an untold number of great men and women throughout history, but sadly is not well known today. Often, it's been used for readers to cut their teeth on the original in Greek, because the language is simple and straightforward, and the story is compelling.

This is the true story of an army of Greek warriors and their journey into the heart of the Persian empire, and their struggle to get back home. It's a tale of adventure, intrigue, loyalty, betrayal, and as you read you can't help but gain a better understanding of the ancient Greeks. As you read you'll see the Greeks at war, their democracy in action, as well as their rhetoric and faith in the gods on display.

This is one of the best adventure stories around that none of your friends have heard of. And as of right now, it's free for your Kindle. All those things combine to make this a must-read!

Xenophon's Anabasis should be read by all who lead others in battles and in business. The excellent examples of leadership-under-stress are as valid today as they were in early Greek times. A must read!

Anabasis is the prototype for adventure stories in Western Literature. It is as gripping and real today as it was over 2000 years ago. Those who appreciate great stories - extraordinary deeds, valiant heros and overcoming great odds - will relish this well told tale.

It is the true story of a band of warriors who had to use all their resources, both brain and brawn, to stay alive in a hostle land. Starting with Alexander the Great, who was said to have referred to this book throughout his campaigns, military leaders from all over the world have appreciated this book and used it as a souce of inspiration.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Riveting Story in need of better packaging 28 janvier 2012

Very, very good which proves that a good story never goes out of style. Timeless. The prose is surprisingly modern and factual. The tone is very modern, no-non-sensical and very realistic. Occassionally interrupted by oratory in the grand style (as when the greeks debate among themselves what to do). If there is one thing I would have wanted it would have been a section of maps (difficult to trail the marching Greeks). And yes, maybe a glossary for all the terms used. Maybe I've should have bought another edition? As for the translation, I cannot comment on it but maybe someone could?

A fine, parallel English and Greek Xenophon

By Lawrence Woodlock

I recently purchased this publisher's Herodotus volume, and was so impressed I gave it a lengthy review, and quickly purchased their Xenophon! I would, indeed, buy anything else they publish. The Anabasis of Xenophon (all seven books) appears in a very nice and scalable Greek font with an accompanying English transation below, both of which display beautifully on my Paperwhite - an excellent alternative to multi-volume English-Greek printed texts, at a much lower cost and in a much smaller package! It's a pleasure to read these books on the Kindle.

In a couple days of reading, I've spotted few obvious anomalies in the text of either language. I did observe near the beginning of Book Five that the translation refers to a certain "Antileon", who is named "Leon" in the Greek text - suggesting that the English translation may be based on a slightly different Greek text from the one actually before us. The English translation in any event reads smoothly, and provides a good crib for those focused primarily on the Greek text. Books Two through Five, and Book Seven, open with a brief summary of what has gone before - inserted in parenthes. This parenthetical material is included in many Greek manuscripts, and is rightly included (in brackets) here. It is thought that these brief introductions were not written by Xenophon, but were added a few centuries later, when the work was divided into the seven books we have today.

As I said in my review of the Herodotus volume: "After too many years, we now know that it is possible for ancient Greek texts to come into their own on e-readers. From their website, it appears that the publisher's inspiration for this work was Heinrich Schliemann, who carried his texts with him everywhere, for use whenever he found a moment to read. This is certainly something that Herr Schliemann would have loved!"

I certaily hope the publisher will find the stamina to provide us with other volumes like these two.
