Reading Material after Xenophon?

I'm teaching myself, and I've gotten to where I can read Xenophon pretty well. (Many negative comments on the Anabasis have been stated here but I'm enjoying it quite a lot).<br /><br />Who would be some good authors to try and read next?<br /><br />I was recommended Lysias but I read some on Perseus and found it extremely difficult (It seems to require much specific knowledge about athenian courts, and also because you're getting one ...

In Need of a Brush-Up

I studied Greek and Latin at school, but that was (agh-hmm) years ago now, and I've found that I've forgotten a lot. Of the books available on this site, which would you most recommend for a brush-up, rather than starting from scratch?

Xenophon Translation Question

I am in the process of teaching myself ancient Greek. To that end I am translating Xenophon's Ways and Means. I think I understand the syntax of the following sentence but I am not totally sure. Part of my doubt is centred on the exceeding complexity of the syntactical rules that I am citing. To put it another way, I may be over thinking the sentence. Advice or feedback would be greatfully received. Anyway, here ...

Book recommendation please

Two books have been recommended and I would like your opinion on which one is the best.<br />1. Athenaze by Maurice Balme and Gilbert Lawall<br /> Reviews on this book vary from "the best" to " horrible" with nothing inbetween.<br />2. Beginning Greek By S.Paine. This book came highly recommended. What makes me hesitant (besides the price)is that this book prepares a person to read the Anabasis. I have nothing against that but some of ...

Pronounciation of "chi"

In JWW First Greek Book it says in 1., that c is pronounced like the "ch" in the German word "Buch". The German "ch" is pronounced very similarly to an "r". <br /><br />That does not really make sense to me, since I thought c was nearly pronounced like a "k". In addition, the German "ch" pronounciation for c sounds weird to me, since it sounds nearly like a r.<br /><br />I would greatly appreciate ...
