Review quote

"Highet has assembled a vast quantity of material concerning the manifold aspects of his subject, filled in gaps where no adequate work has been done, and presented a story characterized by lucidity, charm, and scholarly good sense."--Classical Philology"Solidly grounded and solidly built...[Highet] deals with every period, every movement, every individual, and every separate work as an interesting special case for which he tries to find the special explanation."--The New Yorker
