Editorial Reviews

Greece & Rome, Second Series, Vol. 37, No. 1, Apr., 1990 - John Percival
[T]he reading here offered is one that enlightens as well as challenges, one that leaves earlier studies looking strangely superficial, and above all one that sense the reader back with some eagerness to Herodotus himself.
Classical Philology, Vol. 85, No. 3, Jul., 1990 - Carolyn Dewald
Francois Hartog's Mirror of Herodotus is the most ambitious and influential study of Herodotus' literary techniques to appear since Immerwahr's Form and Thought in Herodotus. (…) The often difficult abstractions and metaphors of French criticism have been translated by Janet Lloyd into clear, readable English.
