Reviews

outstanding scholar ... The punctiliousness of Cauchi's scholarship is evident ... Such respect for matters of fact and history is refreshingly unfashionable and totally praiseworthy. However, one hopes that Cauchi's formidable skills will soon be used in the service of enterprises more substantially appealing to most of us. Cauchi's own comments on Harington show that he can distinguish between texts which are of literary interest and those which are not. * Joost Daalder, Flinders University of South Australia, Review of English Studies, XLIV (175) August 1993 * superbly edited ... The lengthy introduction is a model of good sense, good English, learning, and precision ... The editor seems totally sound on his primary material, and his editorial procedures also appear beyond reproach. His notes, too, strike one as massively learned and accurate. Such respect for matters of fact and history is refreshingly unfashionable and totally praiseworthy. * Joost Daalder, Flinders University of South Australia, Review of English Studies, Vol. 44, No. 175, Aug '93 * a rewarding work to which Simon Cauchi has responded splendidly ... It is ... prefaced by a scholarly introductory section, with flashes of humour which are the most fitting epitaphs to the author. * Conal Condren, University of New South Wales, Paragon, Vol. 9, No. 2, December 1991 * an unexpectedly engrossing text which has never been printed before, and forms a useful addition to our knowledge of Renaissance classicism ... Dr Cauchi's own introduction and notes are helpful at every turn, and the book is beautifully produced. * English Studies, Volume 73, Number 6, December 1992 * Now we have Cauchi's meticulous, intelligently annotated edition of an effort that had been thought largely lost. * Translation and Literature, 1 (1992) * Simon Cauchi has produced an elegant and helpful volume; transcription, Latin text, information on the manuscript, introduction and notes. The work is a curious one and well worth publishing. * Times Literary Supplement *
