The classical scholar and philologist Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848), professor of classics at Leipzig, was especially influential in the fields of Greek grammar and poetical metres. He was among the leading scholars who argued that an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages was crucial for understanding the intellectual life of the ancient world, and should be the chief aim of philology, the study of the development of languages. Only seven of the plays of Aeschylus, the father of Greek tragedy, survive in complete form, and Hermann's was the first critical edition to contain all of them. It was published in Leipzig in two volumes in 1852, four years after his death. Volume 2 contains Hermann's annotations on the texts, an essay on 'Aeschylus' errors about Ionia', and an essay on 'The scenes of The Oresteia'

Philoctetes by Sophocles( Book )

28 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En route to fight the Trojan War, the Greek army abandons Philoctetes after the smell of his festering wound, mysteriously received from a snakebite at a shrine on a small island off Lemnos, makes it unbearable to keep him on ship. Ten years later, an oracle makes it clear that the war cannot be won without the assistance of Philoctetes and his famous bow, inherited from Hercules himself. Philoctetes focuses on the attempt of Neoptolemus and the hero Odysseus to persuade the bowman to sail with them to Troy. First, though, they must assuage his bitterness over having been abandoned, and then win his trust. But how should they do this - through trickery, or with the truth? To what extent do the ends justify the means? To what degree should personal integrity be compromised for the sake of public duty? These are among the questions that Sophocles puts forward in this, one of his most morally complex and penetrating plays."--BOOK JACKET
