Descripci贸

"It is to the Greeks that we turn when we are sick of the vagueness, of the confusion, of our own age."-Virginia Woolf

Discover a new passion for a very old language, a language that can express what can't be said in any other, and thrillingly relevant to our lives today. A language that rewards desire by giving its own modal verb; bequeaths lovers a special case beyond singular and plural; prioritises mindfulness and dynamic presence through its very own grammar. A language that can transform our relationship to time and to those around us.

A love song to the language of the greatest poets, philosophers, adventurers, lovers, and generals that ever lived. In Marcolongo's words: "Greek has been the longest and most beautiful romance of my life." Whether or not readers are familiar with ancient Greek, they will find Marcolongo's boundless enthusiasm for her subject utterly infectious.
