Reviews

"This second edition constitutes a thorough revamp. Many of the newly included essays were simply written too late for the first edition; but Worthington has done much more than just take account of excellent new work, because several of the newly included essays predate the first edition. In other words, he has rethought the entire project.... Like its predecessor, the second edition is a great success and an indispensable teaching tool." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
