Bob Strassler’s answer to a question –
Last night one of our reading group members asked me why Robert Strassler created the Landmark Edition of Thucydides before creating a Landmark Edition of Herodotus.
I asked him – and here’s his answer:
“I did Thucydides first because it was causing more trouble for my students than did Herodotus. And it’s a good thing too, because Herodotus turns out to have been about four times more difficult than Thucydides to fit into a format like the one i have developed. Good luck with the new group.”
Thanks again for joining this reading group.
Keep the questions for me, Andre, Robert Strassler (and everyone) else coming!
