This slim volume contains far more than its size suggests; the Latin text of Statius’ Achilleid, an introduction and a learned commentary by D., and an additional introduction and bibliography to this revised edition by C. In a work of commendable philological knowledge, D. provides insightful comments on Statius’ use and manipulation of the Latin language… C.’s new introduction and bibliography enhance an already accomplished volume… the new introduction taken on its own as a source of basic information on Statius and the Achilleid, recommends this book to undergraduates, if only because of the clarity and tone with which C. presents his information.
