On the Sublime
Longinus, ,  James A. Arieti , & John M. Crossett , translators


A translation which refers the reader to related usages, additional readings of interest, and parallel examples of the various rhetorical constructions in the works of such authors as Shakespeare, Bacon, Sterne, and T. S. Eliot.


". . . a welcome addition to the scholarly material available on this influential and difficult work. . . . will be of interest to a wide variety of readers, but particularly to students of literary criticism. . . . The extensive notes that accompany the text serve several valuable functions . . . . Recommended for public libraries and academic libraries at all levels." - Choice

"This is really a commentary more than a translation, and the authors wish to provide non-Greek readers with access to the form and structure of Longinus' prose. . . . With the current interest in ancient rhetoric the appearance of this translation is most timely." - Religious Studies Review
