A very clear and helpful edition. The introduction had to cover vast ground, which occasionally made it hard to follow, but I it was helpful to readers like me with no background whatsoever. The introduction drew in a number of passages from the text, so that when I got to it I had context for passages that would have been completely enigmatic otherwise.
