Bryn Mawr Classical Review 7.2 (1996) 95-98 (97) (Sander Goldberg): Taken as a group, two features of these essays stand out. First is their pronounced conservatism of conception and method. This is most readily apparent on the literary side, where text-based explication remains untouched by the theoretical and "new" historical trends now seizing the attention of Latinists world-wide. The second half of the collection is at heart equally unassuming. ... The second noteworthy feature is the overall success of this conservatism.
