"Gavin Kelly's Ammianus Marcellinus: The Allusive Historian is a thought-provoking and original study of a key fourth-century author. It makes a valuable contribution to the field of late antique studies and of Ammianus in particular by focusing on the literary aspects of the historian's text. ...an engaging interpretation of Ammianus as a creative and erudite writer. ...a very valuable study that should appeal to a variety of scholars: late antique historians, scholars of Ammianus, Latinists, classicists interested in historiography and the use of classical texts in the late Empire, students of rhetoric and literature." --BMCR
"...this book is a stimulating work of pure scholarship that modern scholars will wrestle with for some time. It joins the works of Matthews and Barnes as a major Anglophone contribution on the Res gestae of Ammianus." --Journal of Late Antiquity
