 HERODOTUS - LoveToKnow Article on HERODOTUS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-29)
Herodotus may thus have had his thoughts turned to literature as furnishing a not unsatisfactory career, and may well have been encouraged in his choice by the example of Panyasis, who had already gained a reputation by his writings when Herodotus was still an infant.
The poetical literature of Greece was already large; the prose literature was more extensive than is generally supposed; yet Herodotus shows an intimate acquaintance with the whole of it.
As such he would have soon ceased to be respected in a society where literature was not recognized as a separate profession, where a Socrates served in the infantry, a Sophocles commanded fleets, a Thucydides was general of an army, and an Antiphon was for a time at the head of the state.

The first full-time teacher-librarian was appointed in NSW in 1949 and children's librarians in public libraries grew in numbers with the inclusion of a paper on children's literature in the LAA's Registration Examination.
A feature of children's literature in Australia at the present time are the many opportunities for children to meet authors and illustrators through such bodies as Lateral Learning which organise speakers and workshop leaders to visit schools.
Australian children's literature today has become 'all things to all people'; an eclectic smorgasbord to nourish as well as entertain young readers; a means of documenting social change and contemporary mores, and a fertile ground for research.

 Dual Loyalty
Literature's killer could hardly be more obvious: It's the Internet [I want to be a loose cannon, I still want to do my part to shake things up: Lily Wong Fillmore is in love with village language
And this is why I sometimes nurse the suspicion that the real gatekeeper of American literature is not the publisher, not the critic, and not Jack Warner's fabled 'schmucks with Underwoods'—i.e., writers.

Since the various works of J.H. Krause, notably Die Gymnastik und Agonistik der Hellenen (Leipzig, 1841) the literature on Olympia and Greek ahtletics has grown enormously.
The gymnasium complex at Olympia including the palaistra has been analysed in C.
