This companion to the Penguin translation of Plutarch's Life of Pericles is divided into three parts. The introduction covers Pericles' life, writings and method of work; the biographical genre; and the portrayal of Pericles by earlier writers. There follows a commentary on the translation, and finally there is a series of useful endnotes on such topics as the treatment of Pericles by Attic comic poets; the historicity of the Peace of Callias and the Congress Decree; and the fortunes of members of Pericles' family.
