About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1927, this book presents a selection of previously unprinted essays by the classical scholar John Arthur Platt (1860–1925). A variety of figures and subjects are discussed, both classical and otherwise, including Aristophanes, Edward Fitzgerald, and the relationship between poetry and science. The text also contains a preface written by A. E. Housman. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Platt and his writings.
