"The best epic saga of the prewar period"
Czesław Miłosz: History of Polish Literature
Nights And Days
Seven Against Thebes
by Aleksander Krawczuk
One of Europe's best-selling writers of popular books on the Graeco-Roman antiquity discusses in a delightfully conversational and informal style the Greek myth of Seven Against Thebes, its roots in the Bronze Age, its historical traces and interpretations, its impact on subsequent generations of Greeks, and on the European literary tradition. "A classicist's feast!"
Aleksander Krawczuk (b. 1922) is a noted scholar of Greek and Roman antiquity, a professor at the Jagiellonian University, former minister of culture, and an author of over 30 popular and widely translated books on the subject of the Antique.
