There are several editions available (or at least there were when I got my copy). It can take a bit of effort to decide which one to go for.Asteriktos said:Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock Holmes (Complete Collection)
Got it for the Kindle, and I just noticed it says "Doyles" on the front cover. Not a great way to start...

Because of a combination of new artistic techniques and some apparently reasonable, but mistaken, assumptions about the history of citrus, oranges appeared frequently in paintings by any number of the great masters of the Italian Renaissance. In making the break from Byzantine scholasticism to the new humanism of the Renaissance, artists began setting their religious figures against naturalistic backgrounds. Not having seen the Holy Land, they glibly set their Annunciations and Resurrections in Italian villas and on Italian hills. Crusaders, among others, had long since reported that orange trees flourished in Palestine, so, as a kind of hallmark of authenticity, the painters slipped orange trees into masterpiece after masterpiece, remaining ignorant to their deaths that in the time of Christ there were no orange trees in or near the Holy Land. (McPhee, 78-79)

Now find out she was writing about my family, not specifically named characters, but in shared tribal experience. At least one of my cousins tied our families together, the Gourneaus to the Pelletier / Peltier.
Very little comedy has survived, but satire did become a lot tamer over time, as government became more conservative.Luke said:I am finally getting a chance to read some Ancient Greek comedy: Frogs and other plays / Aristophanes ; translated with an introduction and notes by Stephen Halliwell.

You might want to take a look at multiple translations. It's becoming fashionable for translators to put a very personal stamp on Greek plays. I'm not saying anything to condemn Halliwell. But someone like Lattimore has a better reputation for stolid accuracy.Luke said:I am finally getting a chance to read some Ancient Greek comedy: Frogs and other plays / Aristophanes ; translated with an introduction and notes by Stephen Halliwell.
