Review Text

It will be a delight to all Classicists . On nearly every page there is some felicity of composition to be admired, some turn of phrase that arouses admiration for the translator. In its entirety, it is an extraordinary work - it is also a wonderfully good read Theodore Brennan, Professor of Philosophy and Classics, Cornell University
