The fifteen essays on Horace, Persius, and Juvenal enable us to appreciate the uniformly high quality of his scholarship and his constant application of good sense as he approaches these writers and the problems they present. this volume and the whole series are designed to make such scholarly contributions available to a wider reading public. A.’s essays are ideal for this purpose. They are for the most part substantial pieces on substantial topics and each is carefully organized with a clear statement of purpose at the beginning and a summary of conclusions at the end.
