KIRKUS REVIEW

A wandering, poorly organized and not original treatise examines the influence of Greece on all the arts of the Renaissance, particularly in Italy. In view of the brilliant and exhaustive studies by Burckhardt and Symonds (and others), it takes great creative imagination or unusual temerity for a writer to tackle this subject anew. The latter quality only can be attributed to this author unfortunately for she has very little to say- and what she has to say is both poor in style and organization. Not recommended.
