Aristophanes : the Acharnians and the Knights. Edited by W.

C. Green, M.A. (Rivingtons.)—This volume belongs to the series called the Catena Classicorwn, one or two parts of which have already come under our notice. Mr. Green presumes the existence of a fair amount of scholarship in all who read Aristophanes, as a study of his works generally succeeds to some considerable knowledge of the tragic poets. The notes he has appended are therefore brief, perhaps a little too brief. We should say the tendency of most modern editors is rather the other way, bat Mr. Green no doubt knows the class for which he writes, and has been careful to supply their wants.
