Praise for Sarah Ruden Paul Among the People
"Ruden offers a wholly fresh reinterpretation of Paul's most controversial writings." -Washington Post "Ruden is winningly intimate as well as impressively scholarly in this superb book." -Booklist

"The most exciting book of historical analysis I've read in ages - indeed the most exciting book period ... What makes reading Ruden such a pleasure, aside from the quality of her thinking and her prose, is her willingness to question settled truths, and to do it with such a lightness of spirit." -Rod Dreher, Beliefnet "Wonderfully unexpected." -Christianity Today
The Aeneid
"The best translation yet, certainly the best of our time." -Ursula K. Le Guin "The first translation since Dryden's that can be read as a great English poem in itself." -Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books "An Aeneid more intimate in tone and soberer in measure than we are used to--a gift for which many will be grateful." -J. M. Coetzee "An intimate rendering of great emotional force and purity . . . The immediacy, beauty, and timelessness of the original Latin masterpiece lifts off these pages with gemlike originality." -Choice Lysistrata
"A perfect Lysistrata for the new millennium: rich apparatus and a sparkling, metrical, accurate translation of this inexhaustible treasure of a play." -Rachel Hadas, Rutgers University Satyricon
"Ruden has caught, better than any translator known to me, both the conversational patterns of Petronian dialogue and the camera-sharp specificity and color of the Satyricon's descriptive pages . . . A quite extraordinary achievement." -Peter Green, Los Angeles Book Review "Relying on her excellent knowledge of Latin, her lively feel for contemporary slang and rhythm, and her infectious love of the work, Ruden gives us the full Satyricon . . . Her book, breathing knowledge and affection, is a delight." -Donald Lyons, The New Criterion
