Review quote

An original and substantial contribution. This is Nagy at his best, in full control of the primary and secondary material, helping us see it in a new and revealing light. Michael N.

One admires the way Nagy gathers together strands of information usually examined in isolation and spins them into a coherent and persuasively presented argument. American Journal of Philology
