From the Publisher"Using the notes (scholia) of ancient (and mostly anonymous) scholars on the works of a number of Greek authors, Nünlist (Brown Univ.) examines what might be termed 'ancient literary criticism in action.'...The result is fascinating and useful. Fascinating, because the author presents the material through the eyes of the ancient scholars, this allowing the reader to see how they read and what they thought most in need of defense, explanation, praise, and censure. Useful because Nünlist translates all the Greek he cites and equips the work with an extensive glossary of Greek literary-critical terms and exemplary indexes. The book will thus appeal to both scholars working on the topic and anyone interested in ancient literary criticism."
