Summary:
A Companion to the Study of Virgil is not yet another introduction to Virgil's poetry, nor is it the thinking man's version of the bibliographies in ANRW.

Abstract:

A Companion to the Study of Virgil is not yet another introduction to Virgil's poetry, nor is it the thinking man's version of the bibliographies in ANRW. The editor and three outside contributors offer a guide both to the key problems and to the most intelligent discussions. They do not offer 'solutions' to all the difficulties, but are not frightened to admit that this we do not know, that that is a mess, and that there more work is to be done. The book is aimed at graduate students and university teachers. Many of the issues are difficult and artificial simplifications seem to offer no advantages. Apart from ample discussions of the poems and the main issues they raise, the book offers chapters on the life of Virgil (N. M. Horsfall), his style (N. M. Horsfall), his influence on late Latin epic (W. R. Barnes), on Latin life and culture (N. M. Horsfall), and his MS tradition (M. Geymonat).
