Short biography
In 1930, at age 62, Edith Hamilton published her first book, The Greek Way, which was instantly popular and continues to be a beloved text on ancient Greece. She went on to become a prolific writer, including works on Greek mythology also studied by millions. The New York Times described her as the classical scholar who "brought into clear and brilliant focus the Golden Age of Greek life and thought. . . with Homeric power and simplicity in her style of writing." She's the subject of a memoir by a former student called Edith Hamilton: An Intimate Portrait.
