Bryn Mawr Classical Review vom 13.4.2004

»It is more than welcome that this book presents the first modern commentary on a section of book twelve of the Thebaid, containing the particularly dramatic encounter of Argia and Antigone on the battlefield before Thebes and their effort to bury Polynices. The commentary is careful and diligent, and tackles a lot of problems with Statius' mostly difficult language successfully. This fine specimen of philological mastery and its predominantly unprejudiced way of handling a still relatively unusual author contributes much to our understanding of the Thebaid. The reviewer, writing herself a commentary on the whole of book 12 for the Cambridge Green & Yellow series, got a lot out of it, for which she is most grateful -- as will many readers besides her.«
