STOVER, J. A.,
A New Work by Apuleius: The Lost Third Book of the De Platone. Edited and Translated with an Introduction and Commentary by.
Oxford University Press, 2015. 240p. Hardback. This brief and unassuming volume offers an admirable model for the exercise of textual criticism, translation, and philological commentary. It is a volume that holds potential interest for several audiences of classicist readers: those interested in ancient philosophy; those devoted to the second-century ce Latin prose master Apuleius; and those who might be intrigued by the publication of a new text of classical Latin ... those who peruse the pages of this editio princeps with either casual or more sustained attention will be rewarded with a rich, indeed lavish philological treatment that is at once learned, judicious, and inspiring. Both editor and press are to be commended for a fine addition to the Apuleian and Latin philosophical bibliography, a text and commentary that does more than fair justice to an obscure work that has defied the ravages of time.
