A Reading and Discussion

The Histories
Herodotus


Translated by Walter Blanco

Walter Blanco is Chair of Lehman’s English Department.  He has translated and co-edited The Histories of Herodotus and Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War in the Norton Critical Editions series.  The first edition of Herodotus was an abridgement of that great work.  His recently published second edition now makes The Histories available in its entirety.

Herodotus’ history is the earliest continuous prose narrative in Western literature.  His long narrative - longer than either of the Homeric epics - continues to hold us spellbound because of the author’s storytelling powers and intelligent curiosity.

The perfect introduction to Herodotus, this edition includes the complete text of The Histories.  The translation is fully annotated and is accompanied by an introduction, chronology of events, and note on the Persian Wars.
