Quick Overview

This book examines the hypothesis that connections exist between Greek Hellenistic romances and a small group of 11th century Persian romances. It further suggests that parts of the Hellenistic romances themselves derive from Persian prototypes. If both hypotheses are correct it means that an intermittent mutual borrowing and mingling of Greek and Persian literary cultures existed for several hundred years.
