    An excellent read for delving into the make up of the man Sophocles delivered by excerpts from several experts in the field. While informative, I was a little put off by Werner Jaeger's constant supplanting of Gods for singular God. Catering to the Judeau Christian ideology I feel demeans the role that the many gods of the Hellenic Pantheon played in the lives of the Ancient Greeks. All in all, great (and short) book.
