Sophocles by Sophocles( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophocles with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm - but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. -- Jacket

5 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publius Terentius Afer--our Terence--was a slave from North Africa, brought as a boy from Carthage and sold to a wealthy Roman named Marcus Terentius Lucanus. Recognizing the boy's natural charm and genius, Marcus Terentius had Terence educated along with his own children and eventually set the gifted young man free. Terence took to his education in Latin and Greek literature and was soon writing plays of his own--Roman comedies in Latin poetry, based on Greek models

Menaechmi by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi is one of Plautus' liveliest and most entertaining comedies, the main inspiration for Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Dr Gratwick's edition brings new light to bear on the interpretation of the play and on Plautus' place in the development of European comedy. Central to his treatment is the fact that Plautus was a dramatist who wrote to be heard rather than to be read. The various metres which he subtly and flexibly exploited for musical and dramatic effect are here explained in a way that challenges many received views but also offers the student practical assistance in grappling with the technical problems involved both on paper and in performance. The text has been newly constituted on the basis of a complete reappraisal of the manuscript tradition in the light of scholarship since the Renaissance. In preparing this edition Dr Gratwick has had in mind the needs of university students, but classical scholars in general will find much of importance to them
