Review text: "In sum this is a useful resource on Lucan's epic. Those interested in Lucan's rhetoric, his Africa, or his Cato in particular will find a lot to think over here."Paul Roche in: BMCR 2011.05.13 "Overall, this is a strong collection; I learned something from nearly all the articles, and several are first rate."Gregory Hays in: Religious Studies Review 3/2010.
