MEDIA REVIEWS
"Undoubtedly, Damrosch's latest book is a useful tool for prospective readers (especially English-speaking ones) of world literature. It introduces them to major works of world literature and shows them how to read these works, both in their original form and in translation. The author succeeds in his endeavor to launch his readers to 'read, and read, and read still more.'" ( Bryn Mawr Classical Review , April 2009)
