    The Pericles Commission is the first in an exciting new series by first-time novelist Gary Corby, who takes us to Ancient Greece at one of the most exciting times in history. In this wonderfully approachable, historically rich novel, Athens is brought vividly to life in a mystery engaging from the first page to last/5(14).   Pericles’s view of democracy places the value of the public service to the state rather than personal virtues like Socrates, who pours scorn on people of Athens for” heaping greatest amount of money and honor and reputation, and caring little about wisdom and truth and the greatest improvement of the soul ()”(Plato 29d2) instead.

On the other hand, Pericles was a Greek statesman and leader of Athens who lived from to B.C. Pericles started his political career by establishing a vote in the popular assembly. The characters chosen in this book are not as abstruse, say, as the Neoplatonists who came later, but it is still refreshing to read a relaxing tale of Socrates or Pericles without tasking oneself to the more intellectual exercise of analysing what they said, or was said about them/5(8).

As a source of information I am going to use Plutarch’s essays Pericles and Alcibiades, Plato’s Apology and Crito, and Thucydides’ Peloponnesian War. Pericles, (born c. bce, Athens—diedAthens), Athenian statesman largely responsible for the full development, in the later 5th century bce, of both the Athenian democracy and the Athenian empire, making Athens the political and cultural focus of Greece.

His achievements included the construction of the Acropolis, begun in   Socrates, however, who seems to have generally held women in higher regard than most men in ancient Athens, “marvelled at her eloquence, and credited her with composing the funeral oration that Pericles delivered after the first casualties of the Peloponnesian War” and, further, claimed that he, Socrates, had learned from Aspasia “the art of eloquence” (Durant, ).

Athens is a major Greek city-state in European history. It was a great center of cultural and intellectual development, and thus home to philosophers. Socrates and Pericles, two of these philosophers, had polarizing opinions about the city-state and its citizens.

Tracy compiles and translates the scattered, elusive primary sources relating to Pericles. He brings Athens's political atmosphere to life with archaeological evidence and the accounts of those close to Pericles, including Thucydides, Aristophanes, Herodotus, Protagoras, Sophocles, Lysias, Xenophon, Plato, and Plutarch.Pericles of Athens is the first book in decades to reassess the life and legacy of one of the greatest generals, orators, and statesmen of the classical world.

In this compelling critical biography, Vincent Azoulay takes a fresh look at both the classical and modern reception of Pericles, recognizing his achievements as well as his failings.Its format is a dialogue between Socrates and Menexenus, and in it, Socrates opines that Pericles' mistress Aspasia wrote the Funeral Oration of Pericles.

Finally, and most substantially, in his book The Parallel Lives, the first century C.E. Roman historian Plutarch wrote the Life of Pericles and a Comparison of Pericles and Fabius Maximum.
