‘An excellent resource, which I think my students will find extremely helpful. The author provides a detailed and convincing stylistic commentary on the prescribed texts, without being dogmatic or dry. This kind of resource is invaluable as it enables students to work independently and ensures that they have complete notes to revise from… very helpful for A level students. It is a well written, very thorough and detailed stylistic commentary on the prescribed texts… an excellent set of notes for students… Points of style and translation are discussed in an engaging and non-dogmatic way. Mythological allusions are explained briefly and clearly. There is a useful glossary of stylistic terms and introduction to metre… It provides the students with a good, literal translation of the set texts together with a detailed commentary on the stylistic aspects, drawing attention to stylistic features and metrical effects… It is very well targeted at this examination, which requires a detailed and precise knowledge of the stylistic features of the prescribed text and its context.’
