‘Overall, an excellent resource. The commentary is clear but concise: the help it gives on grammar and translation is pitched at the right level to guide students through the translation, and the commentary notes give enough depth and the right kind of analysis for students to be able to gain from them straight away. The presentation and layout of the practice examination questions is excellent. Lastly, the final appendix is excellent: a great summary of key technical terms, both grammatical and stylistic, is a useful reference guide and will be valuable not just for this set text, but for any A Level set text.’ – S Thomson, Classics Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘Excellent! This is the best resource I have reviewed to date: it’s well-researched and contains everything an A level student (and teacher) needs to know to understand the text fully, from historical and literary background to the intricacies of the metre and literary analysis. The material should enable students to get to grips with the text on a number of levels: it’s easy to navigate, the translation is meticulously accurate yet clear, and the style and context notes cover a wide range of key details and information, while setting the selection within the wider context of the book, the poem and 1st century Roman literature.’ – K Morris, Latin Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
