Review quote

"This book fills a deep need.... The rest of us...will be grateful that a competent and knowledgeable scholar has compiled such a useful guide to such an important yet intractable body of material."--Kathleen McNamee, The Classical Review"This fine manual provides valuable guidance for the trained scholar. Dickey provides succinct accounts of the scholia, commentaries, and lexia that survive for individual authors from Homer through the Second Sophistic; she follows this with a similar survey on general grammatical treatises, lexica, and other scholarly works. Recommended." --CHOICE"Any serious student of Greek will want to possess [Ancient Greek Scholarship].... No similar book exists, probably because anyone who attempted it would be advised that it was impossible. Yet it was always a desideratum, since most students doing research will end up looking at scholia, without always knowing what they have before them. The writer has show extraordinary courage in undertaking an Herculean task.... This book is successfully designed for what it seeks to achieve, viz., to help students over the rather steep learning curve so that they can operate on their own in finding and reading. I would certainly be happy to use it in a seminar and recommend it to others, and not only because it has no competition."--William Slater, Bryn Mawr Classical Reviewshow more
