A good basic commentary with historical and mythological notes and the bare bones of grammar review. Carter writes in his preface that the job of grammar explanation belongs with the teacher and not the commentary, but nevertheless provides ample references to grammar books. The commentary divides the text up into manageable 'chunks' and rarely translates the more difficult Latin, providing instead relevant grammar as an aid.
