Review quote

(Ann Mahoney) has produced a text and commentary of Plautus Amphitryo for students of Latin intermediate courses. The readers are intended to have finished their textbooks in elementary courses and to have started reading Latin literature. For them (Mahoney) offers a very helpful tool.... ....her prose is very clear and appropriate for young students. The introduction, text and Latin notes, and vocabulary lists taken together are comparable to a very good German Schulausgabe. Even the quite ambitious notes in Latin should be taken as a model for everyone who is about to write such a Schulausgabe. .........Although, there are a few points that can be criticized, M. has managed to write a comprehensible and thought-provoking commentary for inexperienced readers. -- A. Fuchs, Universitat Rostock, Bryn Mawr Classical Reviewshow more
