    Book details


It consists of a sketch of the Life of Xenophon and a translation of the Anabasis (with maps and index), which, along with much other matter now excluded, formed the earliest volume of my translation of Xenophon sworks. As to the object of this reprint, it has been pointed out to me that there are many readers to whom a version of Xenophon smost famous work, The March of the Ten Thousand, would be welcome, if presented in a more accessible shape. As to the Life, which I have once more ventured to insert, it will form, I hope, a not unfitting Introduction to the authors treatise. Xenophon s Anabasis was, in the opinion of the greatest ancient critics, not only a true story of heroic adventure :but, by a somewhat subtle interblending of truth and poetry, a kind of A pologia.
