The Attic orators from Antiphon to Isaeos by Richard Claverhouse JEBB( Book )

65 editions published between 1876 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Richard Claverhouse (R.C.) Jebb (1841-1905) was a prominent classical scholar and politician. Jebb was University Orator at Cambridge before becoming Professor of Greek at Glasgow in 1875, and eventually returning to Cambridge as Regius Professor. His many publications include books on Greek oratory, Homer, and modern Greece as well as editions of ancient Greek drama. The two-volume Attic Orators from Antiphon to Isaeos (1876) was written with two primary objectives: to attend to a significant but often neglected element of Greek literature, Attic prose oratory, and to situate that oratory within its social and political contexts. Jebb analyses a number of rhetors from the period before Demosthenes, providing a thorough overview of the genre during this 'best period of Athens'. Volume 2 focuses on the lives, historical contexts, and works of Isokrates and Isaeos before examining the decline and revival of Greek oratory

Oedipus: myth and complex : a review of psychoanalytic theory by Patrick Mullahy( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Introduction: In this volume Patrick Mullahy approaches the familiar problem of the Oedipus complex in an unfamiliar way. For the first time, Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy is published together with the various psychoanalytic interpretations of the Oedipus myth in one volume. That such an approach is new may seem surprising, since a thorough knowledge of the myth should be the premise for all interpretations. The reasons for the peculiar dissociation between the myth and the complex can be found in our general attitude toward myths. In the last century knowledge of Greek mythology was essential to being an educated person. People studied it and admired it. They interpreted it in a variety of ways-historically, philosophically or esthetically but hardly anyone thought of the possibility that the myth could have any connection with oneself and one's life here and now. With an increasing tendency not to bother with things which were not "practical," the Greek myth was relegated to a marginal area of superfluous and useless information. Then came a revival of just one Greek myth-that of Oedipus-because of the use one could make of it in psychotherapy. Oedipus returned through a back door, as it were.--page i

Sophocles : the plays and fragments with critical notes, commentary, and translation in English prose by Sophocles( Book )

42 editions published between 1883 and 2010 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Richard Jebb's seven-volume edition of the works of Sophocles, published between 1883 and 1896, remains a landmark in Greek scholarship. Jebb (1841-1905) was the most distinguished classicist of his generation, a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, and University Orator, subsequently Professor of Greek at Glasgow University and finally Regius Professor of Greek at Cambridge, and a Member of Parliament for the University. Each volume of the edition contains an introductory essay, a metrical analysis, an indication of the sources used to establish the text, and the ancient summaries ('arguments') of the play. The text itself is given with a parallel English translation, textual collation and explanatory notes, and an appendix consisting of expanded notes on some of the textual issues. The quality of Jebb's work means that his editions are still widely consulted today. This volume contains Philoctetes

Characters by Theophrastus( Book )

42 editions published between 1080 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume collects important examples of Greek literary portraiture." "The Characters of Theophrastus consists of thirty fictional sketches of men who are each dominated by a single fault, such as arrogance, boorishness, or superstition. Unassuming in style, his character sketches nonetheless bear resemblance to the vivid figures of the period's New Comedy. The Hellenistic poet Herodas wrote mimes, a popular Greek entertainment in which one actor or a small group portrayed a situation from everyday urban life, concentrating on depiction of character rather than on plot. Here too in a new text and translation are substantial portions of the mimes of Sophron, a Syracusan of the 5th century B.C. whose work Plato is said to have enjoyed, as well as a selection of anonymous mime fragments." "The extant work of Sophron and the anonymous mime fragments are newly added to the Loeb Classical Library in this edition. And Jeffrey Rusten and Ian Cunningham have updated their editions of Theophrastus and Herodas (both first published in 1993) in light of the latest scholarship."--Jacket

Elektra : a play by Sophocles( Book )

54 editions published between 1867 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critical edition of Ezra Pound's Elektra marks the most significant appearance in twenty years of a "new" work by the controversial poet. Composed in the early months of 1949, while Pound was under indictment for treason and hospitalized by court order in Washington, D.C., this hitherto unpublished version of Sophocles' play documents a critical stage in the poet's writing career: with his subsequent rendition of Sophocles' Trachiniae and his ongoing translations from the Chinese classics, it signaled his return to sustained composition and his eventual decision to resume his life work, the Cantos. The success of Carey Perloff's Classic Stage Company debut of Pound's play in 1987 has already demonstrated the interest of the theatrical community in the work, and this presentation of the text, with critical apparatus, is a major event in Pound studies. The edition serves as a kind of practical workshop in translation, particularly in its exposition of Pound's discussions with his collaborator, Rudd Fleming. Richard Reid demonstrates in his introduction that Pound's choice of the Elektra was of crucial significance. In the play Sophocles confronts many of our most deeply held cultural assumptions: those concerning the family, the community, the claims of religion and justice, and language itself. As anyone familiar with the works of Pound will readily recognize, these issues are central in his own writings. The Elektra clarifies the formal, thematic, and psychological dilemmas seen in his work following the achievements recorded in the Pisan Cantos. This play and Pound's version of the Trachiniae can lead to a reassessment of his entire oeuvre in the context of this century's history. It will be essential reading for admirers of Pound's poetry, for students of the art of translation, and for directors and actors interested in performing the drama of ancient Athens on the modern stage.Originally published in 1989.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
