Mercedes y Richard Buxton discuten el libro y los cíclopes en la mitología griega, en el podcast de Ithaca Bound, el 4 de junio de 2021.

Part scholarly monograph, part love letter to a monster, this book is an exhaustive account of ancient stories about one-eyed giants, their depiction in classical art, and their reception in the western tradition from antiquity to the twentieth century… As Aguirre and Buxton show in this accessible, learned, and often humorous volume, there is more to this monster than meets the eye… This far-ranging book succeeds admirably in providing readers with a survey of the representation of the Cyclopes in art and literature from antiquity to the present. Historians of myth, monsters, and the reception of classical culture will find many riches in its pages.
Scott Bruce in Bryn Mawr Classical Review.
