Product description

Review

... immensely erudite ... the leading general book on Gellius ... the book is informed by an infectious passion about words, languages, books, and ideas similar to that of Gellius himself. (Scripta Classica Israelica)

We can be grateful for the publication of a second edition with an index verborum and an index locorum that now make this wealth of information available for convenient reference ... Congratulations are due for the improvement and reissuing of this delightfully rich and stimulating book. (Scripta Classica Israelica)

This second edition remains the only comprehensive worthwhile study of Gellius ... The range of Holford-Strevens' scholarship is evident throughout ... it remains a delight to share in Holford-Strevens' evident pleasure in his own scholarship and that of his subject. (The Journal of Classics Teaching)

This is a book about language and about scholarship ... [Holford-Strevens] has produced a book that simultaneously is -and -is not- a modern academic monograph. (Jane Lightfoot, Times Literary Supplement)

he genuinely loves his author (Jane Lightfoot, Times Literary Supplement)

this producer of an extraordinary mind (Jane Lightfoot, Times Literary Supplement)

By Anonymous and loving it - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a revision--as complete as any I can think of--of an already hugely learned and intelligent work, indispensable for the Latinist and the students of the Renaissance, when Gellius's stock was very high. Buy it!
