Coming of Age in Ancient Greece: Images of Childhood from the Classical Past

Hood Quarterly, autumn 2003
Derrick R. Cartwright, Director

We know a great deal about the lives of men in ancient Greece, and something about the secluded existence of women. Information about children's lives, though, is largely missing. What scholars do know has been pieced together from surviving written texts—chance literary references, writings by ancient philosophers on education and upbringing, and fragmentary inscriptions on monuments and gravestones.
