This companion reader to Chase and Phillips, A New Introduction to Greek, (Harvard University Press: Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1961) is a compilation of slightly edited ""real Greek"" from Plato, Xenophon, Plutarch, Diogenes Laertius, and the Septuagint. The reader has a preface introducing the student to the Greek authors. The lessons reinforce grammar and vocabulary in this classic introductory textbook. Students meet Socrates, Plato, Cyrus, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, his horse Bucephalus, and more. They read about events surrounding Socrates' trial and execution, Plato's analogy of the cave, Caesar's capture by pirates, the first chapter of Genesis, and a famous Psalm. In short, students are exposed to some of the classics of Western Civilization in this short reader, which seeks to complement the proven Chase and Phillips.""Schmisek has designed a delightful and extraordinarily helpful text that breathes new life into an old classic. His readings admirably and elegantly illustrate grammatical points in the context of carefully selected passages, while engaging the student with both iconic and charmingly idiosyncratic vignettes of Socrates, Plato, Alexander, Caesar, and others.""--Frank Russell, Professor of Classics and History, Transylvania UniversityBrian Schmisek is Associate Professor and Director of the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago.
