Sailing the Wine Dark SeaJoin the History Book Club as we discuss Sailing the Wine Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter by Thomas Cahill.

In Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, Cahill explores the legacy, good and bad, of the ancient Greeks. From the origins of Greek culture in the migrations of armed Indo-European tribes into Attica and the Peloponnesian peninsula, to the formation of the city-states, to the birth of Western literature, poetry, drama, philosophy, art, and architecture, this book makes the distant past relevant to the present. Cahill argues that Greek society is one of the two primeval influences on the Western world: While Jews gave us our value system, the Greeks set the foundation and framework for our intellectual lives.

Full of surprising, often controversial, insights, Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea is a remarkable intellectual adventure--conducted by the most companionable guide imaginable. Cahill's knowledge of his sources is so intimate that he has made his own fresh translations of the Greek lyric poets for this volume.

All are welcome to attend, even if you haven't read the book.
