From the cover: Apart from the immediate aesthetic pleasure we derive from the sheer beauty of Greek vases, there is also the fascinating wealth of historical detail which can be seen if we take a closer look. Here are recorded incidents from the spiritual, intellectual and everyday life of this long-dead civilisation, from the amazing adventures of Hercules to the agony of a bereaved mother. The figures that feast and fight and mourn, vividly evoke the spirit of ancient Greece, and we can trace through the centuries the search for absolute beauty that was fundamental to Greek art.
