On not knowing greek

´For it is vain and foolish to talk of knowing Greek, since in our ignorance we should be at the bottom of any class of schoolboys, since we do not know how the words sounded, or where precisely we ought to laugh, or how the actors acted, and between this foreign people and ourselves there is not only difference of race and tongue but a tremendous breach of tradition. Taken from ´The Common Reader, these essays take the form of a series of reflections on diverse literary topics, brought to life by Woolf's extensive knowledge, lively wit and piercing insight.
