5 Reasons the Perseus Project Is Incredible

Last month we announced the release of nearly 1,500 resources in the Perseus Collection—for free. In case you were wondering why you should bother downloading such a large addition to your library, we’ve compiled five reasons why Perseus is incredible:

Educational Value:
C. S. Lewis said, “Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.”Familiarity with the classics of Greek and Roman literature has often been a hallmark of a well-rounded education. Equally important is knowledge of one’s own history and culture. With the seven bundles included in our Perseus Collection, you can browse 340 volumes on
19th century American history, 22 volumes on the Renaissance, and even read hundreds of Greek and Latin classics such as Aristotle, Epictates, Plutarch, Homer, and many more.
