Aelian’s On the Nature of Animals by Gregory McNamee


Aelian’s On the Nature of Animals
by Gregory McNamee

Publisher:Trinity University Press, 2011
Limp cover, sewn sections, pp.180

Not much can be said with certainty about the life of Claudius Aelianus, known to us as Aelian. He was born sometime between A.D. 165 and 170 in the hill town of Praeneste, what is now Palestrina, about twenty-five miles from Rome, Italy. That he is not better known is simply an accident: he has not been widely translated into English, or indeed any European language. This selection from his work will introduce readers to a lively mind and a witty writer who has much to tell us.
