MEDIA REVIEWS
Professor Wiseman in these essays bears his own learning lightly, and his hope that, just as it was written for pleasure ... this is a book to be read for pleasure, deserves to be fulfilled ... * Times Literary Supplement *
This is a delightful book, one which amply demonstrates how versatile Wiseman is, from cartography to the sonnets of Hopkins, dabbling in depth, always to be taken seriously, always securely grounded in scholarly evidence ... The book is accessible to the classical civilisation student and the non-specialist reader. * Scholia *
... The collection contains a number of essays which in the final analysis should encourage readers of this journal to think about the classical tradition in new and potentially profitable ways ... Wiseman writes with clarity and grace, and the balanced fairness with which he sketches the superficiality of Baddeley and the eccentricities of Knight allows the reader to encounter them as interesting figures in their own right. What is more, the essays printed here suggest that there can be more to the study of the Classical tradition than we generally acknowledge. * International Journal of the Classical Tradition *
