Product Description


This is a book for the professional classicist, or those training to be such — a book for experts and those who wish to become experts ... The translations are well executed ... brought out the sense of the German efficiently and well ... This is a well produced, thoughtful and useful volume, and it performs a service. For those who have not or will not read these essays in German, it allows some measure of exposure to these excellent articles. For those who have read them or will read them, it provides a stimulus to attend to their arguments (again), and a convenient way to use and refer to them. (Andrew Becker, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 98.11.09)

This welcome volume makes fundamental work on Homer available to those with little German... I urge reading the book and hope we shall see subsequent volumes... for the tragedians, philosophers and Latin authors. (William M. Calder III, Religious Studies Review Vol.25 No.4)

the project was certainly worth doing, and has been done intelligently and well. These essays constitute a volume far superior to many newly commissioned collections. (R. B. Rutherford, The Classical Review)

A useful tool to teachers and scholars. (TLS)
