Description
This is the first comprehensive account of the life and work of the distinguished scholar and public figure Gilbert Murray (1866-1957). Sixteen contributors survey his childhood, his work in the theatre and in international relations, his Greek scholarship and contributions on religion and philosophy, his friendships (including those with Bertrand Russell and A E Housman), his long commitment to the Home University Library, his radio work, and his involvement with psychic research. The book provides a thorough reassessment of a remarkable man, integrated with a study of English intellectual culture of the time.
