Editorial Reviews

"The collection provides an exemplum to our profession, and especially to younger classicists, that we must continue to take up big, general topics which are vital and can be taken back to our courses for general learners. There is a great deal of sophisticated work being done these days, butit is often highly compartmentalized and a certain aridity tends to go with the discourse. We need to remind people that there are wider horizons."--Karl Galinsky, University of Texas at Austin.
