“While readers will also want to consult works by Doody (1985), Oakley-Brown (2006), Hopkins (2010), and Martindale (1988) ― among many others, too numerous to list ― this new Handbook is highly recommended as a scholarly introduction to the reception of Ovid.” – Eighteenth-century Studies and Eighteenth-century Literature, 1 October 2014
