A Manual of Greek Literature from the Earliest Authentic Periods to the Close of Byzantine Era

"Anthon''s A Manual of Greek Literature is a comprehensive guide to Greek literature by a legendary American scholar. Although over 150 years old, it remains valuable, if you know how to use it. Literary opinion has, of course, changed, but very few new works have been discovered and most of facts were long-established even in Anthon''s day. Anthon''s scope deserves mention; whereas others often stop in the 4th century BC or extend to Late Antiquity, Anthon''s work goes all the way up to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. For later authors, and for obscure authors generally Anthon''s description is often the best material available on the web. "
