I've actually put off reading it because I was underwhelmed by The Goldfinch and was in no hurry to try another Tartt book. Happily, I loved Donna Tartt won the Pulitzer Prize for her most recent Novel. She was born in Greenwood, Mississippi, and is a graduate of Bennington College.
Some of it you could figure out based on the context.
Tartt has an amazing ability to develop her characters into such complex and interesting people and by the end of the book you feel that you know them on a personal level. The storyline is intriguing and suspenseful. Her writing offers the perfect amount of description without making the pace of the book seem slow. This book was very hard to put down once I started it, as was the case with her first book I read.
Her writing style is different, in such a wonderful way, from the popular authors of today. I cannot wait to devour the next book of hers, which sadly, is the last of the 3 novels she has written.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries.
So he narrates with the force of passion.
It is full of quotations. Within a couple of sentences Richard is quoting from Rimbaud unattributed and untranslated. It has a charismatic master of ceremonies. It is obsessed with beauty. Tartt's narrator seems little interested in sex, but is readily intoxicated by beauty: human, natural, or poetic. The novel notices how important beauty is to us, yet how rarely anyone speaks of it.
Beauty is harsh. This is "about the first sentence that I ever learned in Greek" and becomes a dictum for Richard.
