This is the first dedicated grammar of Classical Greek for students for almost a century. It provides exceptional clarity, helpfulness, and ease of use for GCSE and A level students, as well as anyone with an interest in Ancient Greek. Generous help with grammatical terms, pronunciation, and difficult idioms is provided. Practice exercises, example sentences, and helpful tips throughout make this the perfect study companion.
James Morwood, formerly Head of Classics at Harrow School in England, was a Fellow at Wadham College, Oxford and Grocyn Lecturer for the Literae Humaniores Faculty.
