It is too bad that this is a prose translation of a very intricate bit of Greek poetry. Apollonius works best when describing some of the scenes in his work, but does not do a very good job tying everything together. However, it is an essential read to complement Vergil, as the work very clearly influenced the much more polished Aeneid.
