schema:name <http://schema.org/name> Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2016.03.30
schema:author <http://schema.org/author> Robert W. Wallace
schema:reviewBody <http://schema.org/reviewBody> This book is cause for

schema:description <http://schema.org/description> William Fitzgerald,
How to Read a Latin Poem: If You Can’t Read Latin Yet. Oxford; New York:
Oxford University Press, 2013. Pp. ix, 278. ISBN 9780199657865. $35.00.
This is indeed why I wanted a "before and after" test - to see if schema
did add SEO. Now we don't know.
