Review of the hardback: '... these papers represent a welcome return to a tantalizing assortment of fragments ... This collection is a welcome sign, signalling ... attention to a complicated and tantalizing set of fragments. ... no student of the Catalogue of Women will come away from this book without a different approach to try out for him or herself, without repeatedly thinking while reading, 'I don't quite remember that fragment ...' and wanting to look at the poem anew.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review Review of the hardback: '... invaluable ... The collection of essays offers numerous intelligent ways of reading a fragmentary and influential poem ...'
