Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of writings about Gilbert Murray. It then describes Murray's life, which can be divided into five main stages: his early life in Australia, ending when he was brought to England aged 11 in 1877; his education at Merchant Taylors' School and Oxford University, where he graduated in 1888; his time as professor of Greek at Glasgow University, from which he resigned in 1899 followed by a period of convalescence and writing; his return to Oxford in 1905, which was dominated by his career as Regius Professor of Greek from 1908 to 1936; and his long and active retirement, until his death in 1957. The chapters included in this volume are presented.

Keywords:   Gilbert Murray, Merchant Taylors's School, Oxford University, Glasgow University, Richard Claverhouse Jebb, Regius Professor of Greek
