Aeneid Book IX. Edited by Ph. Hardie.
Cambridge University Press, 1994. 268p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. 'I wish to end as I began, with praise for H.'s considerable accomplishment in producing not only a useful commentary, but also one that is original and consistently interesting and provocative. The same piercing intelligence, command of Greek and Latin literature, and refusal to be satisfied with tired old formulations that are apparent in his earlier books and in his numerous articles make this commentary a most valuable contribution, and I look forward eagerly to further discussions by H. of the issues raised by Aeneid 9. As much as anyone working on Latin poetry today H. is unpredictable, with a rare tendency simply to go in the direction the evidence before him indicates on any issue. When you see his name in a table of contents or card catalogue, take and read.' (J.J. O'HARA in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 95.07.11).
