Young Forsyth, Phyllis (L)

Phyllis Young Forsyth, (1944- ) is Professor Emerita of Classical Studies, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. She was possibly the first to suggest a Sicilian connection with Atlantis[266]. She apparently considers that Plato wrote the Atlantean story as an anti-war allegory after his own experiences with the King of Syracuse, the Peloponnesian War, and the history of the defeat of the Persian invasion. In more recent years she has written on Thera during the Bronze Age[267] and the consequences of its catastrophic eruption.
