MEDIA REVIEWS
English readers are deeply indebted to Mr Bull's skilful translations and Mr Porter deserves credit for his share in the gargantuan task of translating poems that even Wordsworth found "the most difficult to construe". * The Tablet *
The entire book is readably and vividly translated. * The Universe *
