Greek Deception, Greek Tragedy, German Farce, German Myth

It is more than two Millennia since Greece was the pinnacle of Western Civilisation. Today, it is berated as a backward, corrupt and unloved appendage to Europe—its appendix, so to speak. But Greece was once the brain and soul of Europe, and its legacy is still alive today. Rome was the far greater Empire, but it is Greece that is remembered for its philosophy, its politics, and its culture. Even Greek myths, from the truly mythical morality tales of Damocles and Tantalus, to the embellished history of the sacking of Troy, have more currency in today’s civilised consciousness than the gods or exploits of Rome.
