The Hemlock Cup: Socrates, Athens and the Search for the Good Life
"The Hemlock Cup is another vibrant and atmospheric work from this well-known promoter of the ancient world." --BBC History Magazine"Here is a work of dazzling erudition which remains hugely readable - what more can one ask" --John Julius Norwich"After over thirty years of reading philosophical books and articles on Socrates (and even writing some of them!) it is very refreshing to see him approached from the perspective of his material and cultural environment. It anchors and illuminates the nature of his mission and achievements and really brings the period alive."--Angie Hobbs, Senior Fellow in the Public Understanding of Philosophy, University of Warwick"No one before Bettany Hughes has thought to weave Socrates’ examined life into so rich a tapestry of democratic Athens's teeming high-cultural and mundane experience. Lucky readers will be drawn by Ms Hughes's beguiling prose into exploring the highways and byways of Athens's urban topography, the devices and desires of the world's first democratic regime, and a Mediterranean world of sex, violence, sympotic carousing and great man-made beauty."--Professor Paul Cartledge, A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture, University of Cambridge"Terrific and passionate writing about a philosopher whose heroism is unquestionable; and as lively and learned an introduction to classical Athens as you could want."--The Telegraph"She does a very good job of re-creating the material world in which Socrates lived, presenting ancient Athens as a much gaudier, dirtier, smellier and in some respects more industrial place than we often imagine."--The Sunday Times "Bettany Hughes breathes life into Socrates... Hughes’ expert attempts to make him flesh and blood, to fill in the gap… teach us about the value of the real as well as the philosophical."--The Scotsman"Hughes cleverly extracts the man from the dramatic scene-setting in the Platonic dialogues and puts him in his life and times by reconstructing ancient Athens and putting the same questions to us that he puts to adherents and fellow citizens. Hughes credits two editors for saving her from ‘extreme colloquialism’ but enough survives to give this intelligent, bright-eyed, vigorous book a life as vibrant as that lived by its subject."--The Times
