Description

This is the first book that shows how classical writers established meaning through direct rather than indirect comparisons. The author shows that classical authors not only wrote, but also thought in a different way than we do today. By undertaking a technical analysis of Vergil's entire vocabulary, O'Neal raises scholarly analysis to a new standard of excellence.
