Sophocles by Sophocles( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 981 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

The libation bearers by Aeschylus( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 1982 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unfortunate result of the eagerness of modern commentators to lay stress on Aeschylus as a thinker and religious poet has been the frequent neglect to observe The Libation Bearers, like Agamemnon, is full of suspense, action, and skillfully contrived surprise
Aeschylus by Aeschylus( Book )

48 editions published between 1921 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeschylus (ca. 525-456 BCE), the dramatist who made Athenian tragedy one of the world's great art forms, witnessed the establishment of democracy at Athens and fought against the Persians at Marathon. He won the tragic prize at the City Dionysia thirteen times between ca. 499 and 458, and in his later years was probably victorious almost every time he put on a production, though Sophocles beat him at least once
The Eumenides by Aeschylus( Book )

9 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sommerstein presents a freshly constituted text, with introduction and commentary, of Eumenides, the climactic play of the only surviving complete Greek tragic trilogy, the Oresteia of Aeschylus. Of all Athenian tragic dramas, Eumenides is most consciously designed to be relevant to the situation of the Athenian state at the time of its performance (458 B.C.) and seems to have contained daring innovations both in technique and in ideas. The introduction and commentary to this edition seek to bring out how Aeschylus shaped to his purpose the legends he inherited, and ended the tragic story of Agamemnon's family in a celebration of Athenian civic unity and justice. The commentary also pays attention to the linguistic, metrical and textual problems to be encountered by the reader

Sophoclea : studies on the text of sophocles by Hugh Lloyd-Jones( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editors' approach is remarkably fresh and undogmatic: they often express strong views, but they are open to ideas from a very wide range of sources, and they are not sparing in the credit they give to other scholars... Sophoclea is a thought-provoking collection of notes... in general the point is to elucidate the reasoning that lies behind the editors' choice of reading... The attentive reader will be more impressed by the scholarly strengths of Sophoclea than troubled by its weaknesses: what matters most is the sense it gives overall of intense engagement with an inexhaustible text.' P. E. Easterling, University College London, Journal of Hellenic Studies, No 114, 1994 'The new Oxford Clasical Text (OCT) of Sophocles and its companion volume, Sophoclea (Soph.), make important contributions to scholarship by the editors' handling of traditional scholarly problems, their lively response to recent work, especially that of R. D. Dawe, and their many original suggestions. The two volumes under review mark real progress in the study and understanding of Sophocles. Filled with original ideas and the humane assimilation of earlier work, they challenge the contemporary scholar to absorb their contributions and to go on, by means of further collations and rethinking, to understand the text of Sophocles, the process of its survival, and what he might mean to our day.' E. Christian Kopff, University of Colorado, Boulder, American Journal of Philology 114 (1993) 'The editors have produced a selective critical commentary of permanent value and a text which will long remain the standard edition of Sophocles.' Greece and Rome `a commentary on the text that is full of sound judgment and great learning' Times Literary Supplement (in a review of the collected papers) `the new Oxford text co-edited by Hugh Lloyd-Jones and Nigel Wilson, excites admiration and delight by its comprehensive learning and the sure judgement with which it handles this mass of material ... this is a book which will long be indispensable to scholars who take seriously the pleasure of reading Sophocles" - Malcolm Heath, Times Literary Supplement

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

31 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most famous series of ancient Greek plays, and the only surviving trilogy, is the "Oresteia of Aeschylus", consisting of the "Agamemnon", "Choephoroe" ('Libation Bearers') and "Eumenides" ('Kindly Ones'). These three plays recount the murder of Agamemnon by his queen Clytemnestra on his return from Troy with the captive Trojan princess Cassandra; the murder in turn of Clytemnestra by their son Orestes; and Orestes' subsequent pursuit by the Avenging Furies (Eumenides) and eventual absolution. There has been no shortage of translations and adaptations of the "Oresteia", but such are the poetic complexities of Aeschylus' language and the remoteness of the world he depicts that they mostly fall far short of either the literal meaning or the spirit of the original. This translation by an eminent scholar stays as close to the text as English idiom will allow and is perfectly adapted to the student's needs. Notes elucidate the difficulties, and introductions to each play set the trilogy against the background of Greek religion as a whole and Greek tragedy in particular, presenting a true assessment of Aeschylus' dramatic art."--Bloomsbury Publishing
