I have never written a review on this or any other website, but felt a compulsion while searching for a book, having just finished reading this ed. of 'Clouds', so good it was. -Dovers edition of the clouds is the best (Enlish) commentary on Greek lit. I've come across in the short time I studied Greek, it has been a great interperative tool, a enriching study, and a joy to read. It has and will serve many students, laypersons (and scholars) to come, that is if classical greek weathers these tumultous times. -Those seeking to put Socrates in his 'proper' historical context will find an invaluable resource in this book. -Many will disagree, especially when the 'heroic' Socrates is reckoned into the bargin, but I personaly feel the author is a bit hostile towards comedy. Yet this does not really detract from the work, and he's far more objectibe than most other scholars in regard to Socrates. -As a second year greek student I found the commentary both illucidating and approachable. Not in the least overly pedantic. Great book! My only caveat is you can't easily obtain a new hardback edition, but such is the state of 'higher' education. So if your have more than a passing interest greek litterature ,don't forego this great work.
