Book Description:
Plutarch s vivid and engaging portraits of the Spartans and their customs are a major source of our knowledge about the rise and fall of their remarkable Greek city state between the sixth and third centuries BC. Through his Lives of Sparta s leaders and his recording of memorable Spartan Sayings, he depicts a people who lived frugally and mastered their emotions in all aspects of life, who disposed of unhealthy babies in a deep chasm, introduced a gruelling regimen of military training for boys, and treated their serfs brutally. Rich in anecdote and detail, Plutarch s writing brings to life the personalities and achievements of Sparta with unparalleled flair and humanity.
