Mary Renault was writing in a time of political turmoil and this is reflected in The Last of the Wine. But through the course of the war, all of these ideals are slowly lost or corrupted. Renault once again does a stellar job bringing Classical Greece to life with the story of Alexias, scion of a minor patrician family in Athens during the era when the city felt turmoil both from within and from without as they experienced not only the aggression of Sparta during Peloponnesian War, but also the existence of philosopher and iconoclast Sokrates.
It was good to "return" to "The Last of the Wine" - Renault really makes history come alive with interesting stories - many things in this book about two men who fall in love and take part together in their society - in war, in contemplating philosophical matters - always honoring one another.
