Robert Strassler & Kurt Raaflaub: “The Landmark Julius Caesar” | Talks at Google

In January, 2018 the Reading Odyssey was proud to partner with Google to bring Robert Strassler and Kurt Raaflaub in to host one of the “Talks at Google”. They discussed their then newly released Julius Caesar Landmark series. You can see more info and watch the video below.

The Landmark series has disrupted the publishing world by transforming important ancient texts and making them far more accessible to a modern audience. After a decade of work by top Caesar scholars in the world, the Landmark Julius Caesar has been published. Listen to Kurt A. Raaflaub, Professor Emeritus of Classics at Brown University, and Robert Strassler, Founder & Editor of Landmark books, discuss what makes this edition and Julius Caesar so unique.
