This is a translation of nearly every scrap of the writings of the Greek Pre-Socratic Philosophers, from the nearly legendary Orpheus, through Thales, Pythagoras, Heracleitus, Zeno, and Democritus. Included are translations of all known quotations from each writer, names of lost books they wrote, what other authors said about their beliefs, as well as spurious and dubious quotes. Some of the entries, indeed most, are very short, as we only know the names and a bit of biography for some of these figures. This book is a great reference for this topic, and makes fascinating reading.

Between 1946 and 1954 she published a number of books on classical subjects aimed mainly at what she called "ordinary people" rather than specialists; these included The pre-Socratic philosophers (1946), The murder of Herodes and other trials from the Athenian law courts (1946), The Greek way: an anthology (1947), Greek city states (1950), God, Man and state.
