About the Author

Mary Renault was educated at Clifton High School, Bristol and St Hugh's College, Oxford. Having completed nursing training in 1937, she then wrote her first novel Promise of Love. Her next three novels were written during off-time duty whilst serving in the war. In 1948 she went to live in South Africa but travelled widely. It was her trip to Greece and her visits to Corinth, Samos, Crete, Delos, Aegina and other islands, as well as to Athens, Sounion and Marathon, that resulted in her brilliant historical reconstructions of Ancient Greece. Mary Renault died in 1983.

Reviews

"One of the truly fine historical novels of modern times. Not since Robert Graves's I Claudius has there been such an exciting living image of the Ancient World on this grand scale" New York Times "Takes the raw material of myth and makes it credible- I am spellbound by Miss Renault's art" Observer "Vivid and convincing... it brims with feeling" Sunday Times
