Summary

90 Masterpieces You Must Read (Vol.2) stands as a monumental anthology that bridges the expanses of literary history, style, and thematic depth, bringing together an extraordinary collection of works that have shaped and reflected the human condition across centuries. This volume is intricately curated to showcase the diversity of literary expression, ranging from the epic poetry of Homer to the existential musings of Friedrich Nietzsche, the nuanced social realities captured by Jane Austen to the speculative visions of H. G. Wells. Standout pieces within this collection underscore the anthology's capacity to offer insights into the complexities of love, the struggles for identity, and the ceaseless quest for meaning amidst societal upheaval. The anthology also highlights key movements in literary history, providing readers with a panoramic view of the evolution of narrative form and thematic exploration. The authors and editors represented in this collection bring a rich mosaic of cultural, historical, and personal backgrounds to the theme of the anthology. From the philosophical discourses of Confucius and Laozi to the pioneering feminist narratives of Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Kate Chopin, these works collectively offer a multifaceted examination of human society, thought, and emotion. The anthology does not merely present a historical cross-section of literary movements; rather, it weaves together the Enlightenment's rationalism, Romanticism's glorification of emotion, the biting critique of Realism, and the introspective depth of Modernism, among others. This convergence of diverse voices serves to enrich the reader's understanding of the overarching themes, underscoring the universality of human experience across time and place. 90 Masterpieces You Must Read (Vol.2) is an essential addition to the library of any scholar, student, or enthusiast of literature. It offers a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in a range of literary styles, themes, and historical contexts, all within a single volume. For those seeking to broaden their literary horizons or deepen their understanding of the mosaic of human experience as expressed through literature, this collection serves as a gateway to the myriad ways in which storytelling has captured the essence of being. The anthology invites readers to engage in a dialogue with the past, to reflect on the present, and to ponder the future through the enduring power of written word.

    A compelling and fascinating portrait of the continuing intellectual tradition of Greek writers and thinkers in the Age of Rome. 
     
    In 146 BC, Greece yielded to the military might of the Roman Republic; sixty years later, when Athens and other Greek city-states rebelled against Rome, the general Lucius Cornelius Sulla destroyed the city of Socrates and Plato, laying waste to the famous Academy where Aristotle had studied. However, the traditions of Greek cultural life would continue to flourish during the centuries of Roman rule that followed, in the lives and work of a distinguished array of philosophers, doctors, scientists, geographers, travellers and theologians. 
     
    Charles Freeman's accounts of such luminaries as the physician Galen, the geographer Ptolemy and the philosopher Plotinus are interwoven with contextual 'interludes' that showcase a sequence of unjustly neglected and richly influential lives. Like the author's The Awakening, The Children of Athena is a cultural history on an epic scale: the story of a rich and vibrant tradition of Greek intellectual inquiry across a period of more than five hundred years, from the second century BC to the start of the fifth century AD.

    Burgundians The: The History of...

    A history of Burgundy could more accurately be described as the "history of the Burgundies," because at different points between 406 and 1795, there were at least 10 distinct entities known as "Burgundy." One of the least known of these was the Kingdom of the Burgundians, which lasted from 406-534. This early dominion developed into the Kingdom of Burgundy under the Merovingians and was finally subsumed into the next Kingdom of Burgundy, often known as Cis-Jurane Burgundy, founded in 877.  
    	The Burgundians may have originated as far away as Scandinavia, but by the 5th century CE they had settled in the heart of Roman Gaul, or Gallia as the Romans called it. Gaul had once covered a huge area of Western Europe that today comprises northern Italy, France, Belgium, parts of the Netherlands, Switzerland, and parts of Germany on the west bank of the Rhine. Julius Caesar estimated the population of Gaul in the mid-1st century BCE as approximately 10 million, an enormous number for that time.  
    	The Gauls at the time were not a single nation but a loose confederation of tribes sharing a common language, customs and ethnic origin. As such, they were in a constant flux of alliances, double-crossings and wars, both among themselves and with the neighboring Germans of the Rhineland. This only made it easier for the Romans to gradually conquer parts of Gaul, most famously through Caesar’s Gallic Wars, and Gaul became an even more prosperous region. 
    	The power vacuum left by Rome’s decline allowed groups like the Burgundians to carve out territories in various parts of the empire, and after the Western Roman Empire collapsed, the next few centuries would see a patchwork of different groups fighting each other across Europe, whether for living space or for imperial purposes. Given their location, the Burgundians would end up playing a crucial role in the establishment of Western Europe as it is known today.
