"Not least among the advantages of this format is that it challenges scholars typically working in a climate of intensive specialization to synthesize and distill their knowledge to a greater extent than is normally encouraged." (Phoenix, 2009)

"Essay after essay conveys the excitement of research into the ancient world, showing that nothing is settled, that there are always new questions and new ideas. The essays are lively and provocative, making representative use of source material and enticing readers to enter into the debate themselves. ... There is little to criticise in this volume. ... This Companion titillates the reader into thinking about Latin literature in excitingly new ways." (Scholia Reviews)

"An invaluable source of assistance and instruction for students." (Reference Reviews)

"I can warmly recommend this book, both to experts who wish to have an up-to-date account of the latest trends in the study of Latin literature and to undergraduate and graduate students who can mine this volume for suitable paper and even dissertation topics." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)
