 The Siege of Troy  Kireet Joshi The Siege of Troy   $9.99  $7.49  Buy Now

Through this epic, Homer presents the Greek world-view, a view of life where men are seen as a base metal beaten and shaped by the gods and fate until their inner golden nature is revealed. He showed the Greeks more than just heroic deeds; his poetic genius drew aside the curtain of outer events and gave a vivid picture of the inner forces there at work. Introduction, text and notes.

 The Sanskrit Language  Pierre Sylvain Filliozat The Sanskrit Language   $14.49  $10.87  Buy Now

Sanskrit is described here from these two...
