    About "Herodotus"

      • Herodotus

        Herodotus was an ancient Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus, Caria modern day Bodrum, Turkey and lived in the fifth century BCE c 484 425 BCE He has been called The Father of History , as well as The Father of Lies He was the first historian known to collect his materials systematically, test their accuracy to a certain extent, and arrange them in a well constructed and vivid narrative The Histories his masterpiece and the only work he is known to have produced is a record of his inquiry or histor a, a word that passed into Latin and acquired its modern meaning of history , being an investigation of the origins of the Greco Persian Wars and including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information Although some of his stories were fanciful and others inaccurate, he claimed he was reporting only what had been told to him Little is known of his personal history.It was not until the time of Herodotus that gods began to have less influence upon history that was written, yet it was still implied because of the largely accepted view of the Greeks and the expectations that they may have had of how The Histories would be written History was becoming of a knowledge rather than an amusement Because of Herodotus wanting people to accept what he had to write, he implemented stories that may have not directly correlated to gods, but rather implemented the idea that miracles or supernatural events took place As was the story of Arion and the dolphin While on a boat the men found out that Arion, who was a musician, was worth lots of money and decided to have him killed The crew gave him two options, that either he jump ship or they kill him on the spot Arion flung himself into the water and a dolphin carried him to shore.Herodotus was concerned with putting pleasure before knowledge, unless he did not believe that the gods had a dramatic influence on history and was rather just trying to please his audience Like the story of the king having his servant look upon his naked wife, and when spotting him hiding, asked him to kill her husband 78 This, like many stories of Herodotus, are told in great detail, and for the simplicity of dramatic effect This refers back to the way bards used to tell their poems or stories to their audience Herodotus was accused by many because of such detailed accounts, and even called a liar by some In his writing we can already see that there was no direct association with gods.

    1. Mainly deals with the historical confrontations between the Kingdom of Persia (at its greatest strength) and the various Greek states, Athens, Sparta, etcTotally worth the read if you enjoy Greek History


    2. very short, but perfect for the bus. I really would to read annotated and mapped editions that helps me place the peoples, time and locations of the stories.


    3. Brilliant to give a sense of a different time and world. Grand, matter of fact, learned, detailed and funny. These were fun to dip into.
