This collection contains 300 Greek maxims and proverbs accompanied by their counterparts in eight European languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Dutch, and Russian. The introduction relates the history, the origin, and the importance of proverbs; it also includes a short chapter on the use of proverbs in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Modern Greek literature. This book is a useful companion both for translators and interpreters; a vade mecum not only for them, but also for every learner of the above mentioned European languages.
