This volume of essays is intended to commemorate the eminent Latin scholar David West, best known for his work on Lucretius, Horace, Virgil and Shakespeare.
The contributors - Francis Cairns, Ian Du Quesnay, Bruce Gibson, Alex Hardie, Stephen Harrison, John Moles and Tony Woodman - have aimed to produce close readings of classical texts, paying due attention to historical context and literary tradition in the manner adopted by David West himself.
