9780748616435: Women of Ancient Greece
Críticas:

An outstanding study of the status and role of women in the world of ancient Greece! a useful and interesting book which enlightens us with different view of ancient Greek women both scholarly and thought-provoking in a volume accessible to a wide audience but still relevant to experts! This is an enjoyable book, written in an accessible style, and well illustrated. A personal and poetic history of Greek women. The strength of Brule's work is that is almost completely based on primary sources, with very little theorizing. He lets the ancient authors provide us with the misogynistic picture that inevitably develops. Over fifty authors cited in passages from more than 100 works and fragments of works create a mosaic of rich information on the life of women in ancient Greece. It is not a scholarly work, but an erudite one, providing the novice a readable account, but also supplying the specialist a handy compilation of most of the ancient sources on the subject of Greek women.

Reseña del editor:

Pierre Brule's brilliant evocation of how women lived in ancient Greece describes every aspect of their lives, including their religious, familial and domestic duties, their economic importance, and their social, moral and legal status as wives, cohabitees or slaves. He examines their sexual roles, what the status of a woman's body was and what her own and others' attitudes were likely to be towards it. Professor Brule does all this in the context of the development and achievements of Greek civilisation. Women appear not to have been highly regarded in ancient Greece, with female infanticide a common practice. Strains of misogyny can be heard in Greek literature, drama and philosophy: 'The most unintelligent people in the world' is how one character refers to women in Plato's Symposium (which also features Diotima, his best-known female sage). Women had few duties beyond the home, and the evidence that they existed at all is tantalisingly small. Yet by piecing together fragments and clues, the author gives us a vivid account of women's lives in Greece 2,500 years ago.Pierre Brule's deft scholarship and engaging style make this fascinating history always readable, sometimes moving, and often entertaining.
