Reviews

"The accuracy and the rigor of both the line-by-line commentary and the paraphrase/discussion, the validity of the interpretation, the rich understanding and the clear explanation of Virgil's art along with the helpfulness of grammatical and lexical tools make this volume indispensable for those students and readers who are longing to read the first two books of the Virgilian masterpiece in the original language, and for those teachers who are looking for an easy and possibly pleasant approach to introduce their students to the Aeneid." --BMCR
"Not only is Jones's Reading Virgil a wonderful addition to the AP Virgil curriculum, but students as well as seasoned readers of Virgil and the epic tradition will truly appreciate all the effort and care that went into producing this exquisite volume. We can hope that Jones will soon follow up with Reading Virgil for Aeneid III-XII." ---New England Classical Journal
