From Writer to Reader: Loeb Classical Library

This note sent along by our intrepid Chair Howard Greaves:
May 6th heralds the publication of the 500th volume in the esteemed Loeb Classical Library. To celebrate, Harvard University Press is proud to publish the Loeb Classical Library Reader, a compact selection of the Library’s greatest hits.

The Loeb Library is the only existing series of books which, through original text facing English translation, gives access to all that is important in Greek and Latin literature. The Reader draws on thirty-three of antiquity’s major authors to give a unique sampling of this treasure trove, from Aristophane’s Lysistrata to Virgil’s Aeneid.
