Review quote

Kovacs's translation is a "tour de force"... In general, the notes accompanying the translation, explaining such things as geographical and mythological names, are judiciously chosen, concise, and crystal clear... I have nothing but praise for [Kovacs's] scholarship, and the lucidity of his writing, both as translator and commentator. [This volume] should be [the] standard translation for many years to come.--John Davidson "Scholia Reviews "show more
