Review quote

The new Vergil commentaries from Focus are an exciting resource for almost anyone reading the Aeneid in Latin. . . . The editors recognize that developing core reading skills and involving students in the interpretive questions raised by the poem are not separate objectives. This recognition has resulted in commentaries that enticingly present basic information in a wider setting of observation and enquiry. . . . All in all, the Focus series balances simplicity and subtlety, reminding students at all levels that increasing technical precision and stretching one's interpretive curiosity are--fundamentally--one endeavor. --Antonia Syson, Purdue University [Teaching Classical Languages (CAMWS) Volume 1.1, Fall 2012]show more
