"In all, the volume has much to recommend it, reaching the heights of sublimity more often than sending its readers to purgatory. For such an enormous enterprise the editors are to be congratulated, especially as it is well-produced, with very few errors or problems." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 16 August 2011) "Cooperation among the various authors is a significant feature of the book... In sum, this volume includes something for any lover of Virgil."
