The Last of the Wine Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Last of the Wine

Alexias grows up in Athens during the time of the Peloponnesian War. He meets Lysis, a student of Socrates, and the book traces their relationship as well. The real magic of this book lies not in the plot but in the intense realism (or at least believability) of Renault's re-creation of ancient Greece. You could believe she'd lived there.
