"Dodds is that rare creature, a very learned scholar who wishes to share his thoughts not with his fellow scholars only but also with intelligent readers who are not specialists in his field....This is a fascinating volume."--W.H. Auden, in The New York Review of Books
"[Contains] essays on a theme interesting to specialists in the classics as well as to students in a variety of disciplines....The book is a summary of Dodds' magnificent insight and erudition and an essential contribution to scholarship."--Library Journal
"Assembles...ten infinitely rewarding lectures hitherto difficult (and in some cases impossible) to come by elsewhere....This is a book to buy, cherish, read, reread, annotate, and debate endlessly with friends and colleagues. There is wisdom, illumination, and a sharp challenge to complacency on every page of it. The writing is superb, the irony honed to a fine edge, the wit scintillating and dangerous."--Times Literary Supplement
