Goldwyn and Kokkini have provided English-speakers with a wonderful edition of Ioannes (John) Tzetzes’s Allegories of the Iliad… The poem itself is beautiful and can be appreciated on its own. Scholars, however, will take a special interest in the translators’ faithful yet fluid rendering of the Greek… Many thanks are due the translators and Harvard University Press for making this less-known, fascinating work available to modern audiences. The elegant presentation is a bonus.—F. A. Grabowski, Choice
