"The reprint edition will be most welcome to classicists, comparatists, and students of literary theory. No existing translation of the Poetics even approaches the quality and accuracy of Leon Golden’s, and O.B. Hardison’s accompanying commentary makes the book eminently useful as a text for literary criticism and literature-in-translation courses."--Roy Arthur Swanson, Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
"The Golden-Hardison translation and commentary offer some of the clearest and most persuasive explanations of Aristotle’s key terms. I am happy to learn that this text will again be available."--Donald Keesey, Professor of English, San Jose State University
This volume combines Leon Golden’s highly regarded translation of Aristotle’s Poetics and O. B. Hardison’s detailed commentary provide a comprehensive account of the principles of the Poetics and of the critical debates they have engendered. Clearly written, highly readable, the volume was designed to meet the needs of students of literature and criticism who are not proficient in Greek, but it has become a standard reference for scholars as well as students.
