'Kenney has well succeeded in his aim, which is 'to provide the student with the guidance that he needs for the interpretation and understanding of the book as a work of literature'. His Introduction (...), devided into six sections (The Doctrine, The Poet, The Poem, The Poetry, Book III, The Text), is always interesting and thought-provoking, even when not entirely convincing. The text (...) is provided with an up-to-date apparatus of just the right length. The commentary is scholarly, thorough, perceptive, and economical. The treatment of stylistic and linguistic matters is particularly good.' (MARTIN F. SMITH in The Classical Review (New Series), 1974, p.204). From the library of Prof. Carl Deroux.
