Plutarch’s collection of biographies was the first of its kind and easily as groundbreaking in conception as Herodotus’ Histories. Plutarch looked at the great men of the ancient world and told their stories, in many cases drawing on sources no longer available to us. They offer a unique insight into the characters as well as the achievements of men who influenced their age and the empires that their culture dominated. These biographies are as accessible now as they were when they were first written. Greek Lives is the companion volume to Roman Lives, also read with style by Nicholas Farrell.
