“His introductory commentary on book II of the Aeneid, designed for students starting from an intermediate knowledge of Latin, offers the essential tools for a full understanding, correct translation and appropriate interpretation of Vergil’s text.”
- Beatrice Larosa, Università della Calabria, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2009.05.42
The new Vergil commentaries from Focus are an exciting resource for almost anyone reading the Aeneid in Latin. . . . The editors recognize that developing core reading skills and involving students in the interpretive questions raised by the poem are not separate objectives. This recognition has resulted in commentaries that enticingly present basic information in a wider setting of observation and enquiry. . . . All in all, the Focus series balances simplicity and subtlety, reminding students at all levels that increasing technical precision and stretching one’s interpretive curiosity are—fundamentally—one endeavor.
