Following on from his wonderful translation of Ovid's The Art Of Love, this is the next stage in bringing ancient wisdom bang up to date. Tom introduces, translates and comments on writers such as Cicero, Ovid, Seneca, Hipppocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Aristophanes, in themed sections which tackle medicine, mental decline, growing old gracefully, late love affairs, death and legacy. This is a far-reaching collection full of wisdom, humour and poignancy, and is much more than a straight translation - Tom uses translated segments to extrapolate on his own thoughts and ideas, which give the classic texts a modern, accessible, fun tone.
