‘The notes are superb… I thought it was thorough, well laid out, and clearly written. The author has excellent knowledge of the topic. The notes on literary criticism and mythological allusions was excellent, being clear, easy to understand and detailed. The introduction to the poets included helpful material: their life and an overview of content and style of their writing… I especially liked the tone of the notes, which used the 1st person (giving it a personal feel, and helpful for the Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation exam requirements which reward use of personal response – something students find hard to incorporate when they have studied e.g. History, which demands an objective style).’
– A Webb, Head of Classics & Independent Reviewer
