Don’t forget the Picture Study that goes with Plutarch’s Life of Pericles!
Just as Charlotte used specially edited school editions that removed unsuitable content for students, Plutarch’s text for the Life of Pericles Study Guide has been edited for length and content. You can feel comfortable handing it over to your student for independent use.
All Plenary Plutarch Guides use the translation by George Long and Aubrey Stewart. We feel that the translation by Long and Stewart is not only more accurate, it is also easier and more accessible for today’s students.
