"Greek: An intensive course is the most massive text currently available for the teaching of elementary ancient Greek. The pedagogical approach is as traditional as ever, but it is intensive; it contains the kind of detail that every teacher dreams about ... it will continue to remain a major tool for the teaching of ancient Greek fully and accurately." Modern Language Journal "This is a text of such wonderful clarity that it is a delight for both student and instructor. It treats the student as if he were readily capable of understanding a language more complex than English and by presenting the substance in logical units rather than dribs and drabs, it encourages even the less talented to make genuine progress. What the gifted can achieve is amazing. " Lydia Lenaghan, Columbia University "Unlike other traditional books, it does not presume a previous knowledge of another inflected language; all the explanations necessary to understand Greek are contained within the book itself." Languages and Literature "...all the new material is very fully and clearly much so that I had hopes that a motivated student would be able to continue on his own...there are a very large number of drills and practice sentences..." -Peter L.D. Reid, New England Classical Newsletter
