    Review quote
    Donna Hurley has done a sterling job in providing us with both an Introduction to Suetonius and a translation of The Caesars that we can confidently recommend to students. Her Introduction summarizes a complex topic succinctly and is informative without being overwhelming, set at an ideal level for the student and intelligent enthusiast. Her translation is accurate and contemporary. Her primary goal is faithfulness to the original, which she achieves, but at the same time she recognizes the need to make her text clear, entertaining, and comprehensible to the modern reader, and she strikes exactly the right balance. --Anthony Barrett, Emeritus, University of British Columbia Hurley, who has written extensively and with authority on Suetonius, knows her author and his text thoroughly, and her Introduction to them is a model of presentation. Annotation (footnotes, not endnotes) is concise and to the point; essential background is gracefully sketched in a preliminary section on Roman institutions; maps and plans are clear and full. This thoughtful concern for the reader's needs justifies confidence in the translation itself: for its combination of accuracy, clarity, and readability, it is the best. --Edward Champlin, Princeton University Hurley's most readable English translation of Suetonius' Caesars is only the second to be attempted in over fifty years, and represents an outstanding achievement. Set clearly in context by her concise footnotes and full explanatory materials, it will fascinate readers eager to encounter the outsize personalities, heady pleasures, and sinister perils within that most alluring of lost worlds--the Roman imperial court. --Richard Talbert, University of North Carolina
