When I was young I wrote many serious scholarly reviews, as a means of clarifying my own ideas.
But later I found that reviewing took up too much time, and that no-one read scholarly reviews
except as a short-cut to avoiding reading the book. Also authors were extremely sensitive to
criticisms of their work, and one ended up with as many enemies as readers. I therefore made a
conscious decision to follow the example of Cicero in relation to prosecutions, and only to review
occasionally, and where possible for one or more of the following reasons: books or works of art
that I admired, books which were important for cultural reasons, and in order to persuade a broader
public of the continuing importance of the classical tradition. My reviews since 1974 have
therefore usually been written for newspapers and cultural journals (which had the advantage that I
was often paid for the review). Under Reviews I also record minor journalism (such as
introductions to catalogues).
