The prescribed texts are set out in clear passages facing commentary notes, with further information on GCSE vocabulary and key terms as well as study questions.

The book is supported by a companion website of further resources.

Reviews

This is a beautifully produced textbook, with attractive embossing on front and back covers, a lovely thing to hold and behold ... An innovation, and one which most purchasers will welcome, is that all the prescribed texts until 2023 are included ... Also useful are the typical questions to be found on most pages, a mixture of the factual and the thought-provoking. * Journal of Classics Teaching *
