Pressestimmen

"The book's editorirla work is generally excellent...The principal merit of G.'s study is that it provides a detailed and thoughtful analysis of Aratus' astropoetic and Augustus' propagandistic influence on Ovid's Fasti...(The book) deserves a place especially on the shelves of those interested in the Fasti and in the Nachleben of Aratus."
