"This variegated and sizeable volume has for me been stimulating and informative, a pleasure to read for review . . . The future paths' he proposes seem to me to amount to different configurations of intellectual history, so no surprises there; but his clear statement of the opportunities offered by reception studies in the classroom is admirable, and his call for a new kind of classicist-academic: the engaged public intellectual' is visionary. " (Translation and Literature, 2011)
