The Hellenism of Mary Renault (A Chicago Classic) by Associate Professor Bernard F. Dick Ph.D.

Best known for her historical novelsThe Last of the Wine(1956),The King Must Die(1958),The Bull from the Sea(1962),The Mask of Apollo(1966), andFire from Heaven(1969)Mary Renaults works have often appeared to readers as collateral reading to Greek literature. She is, doubtless, one of the most creative historical novelists of our era and the only bona fide Hellenist in twentieth-century fiction. nbsp; What is less well known is that Mary Renaults earlier works, written between 1939and 1953among themPromise of Love(1939),Return to Night(1947),andThe Charioteer(1953)were conshy;temporary pieces, not concerned with antiquity. Covering the entire range of Miss Renaults work, Bernard Dicks peneshy;trating study analyzes the early works and shows they were filled with classical allusions and dominated by Greek ideals of friendship.
