The 'Big Three' of Greek History; Herodotus, Thucydides, and Xenophon
Some of the questions to bear in mind when reading Greek History...
- who writes history and and what gives them the authority to do so?
- who is the intended audience of history?
- what is history for?
- why is the role of war, truth, morality, and religion in history?
- how does history differ to tragedy, epic and other forms of literature?
