Most widely held works by James Diggle
Odysseus unbound : the search for Homer's Ithaca by Robert Bittlestone( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines literary, geological, and archaeological evidence in an attempt to identify the true location of the island of Ithaca described in Homer's "Odyssey."
The classical papers of A.E. Housman by A. E Housman( Book )

18 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete collection, in three volumes, of the classical articles and reviews of A.E. Housman. These papers were originally published between 1882 and 1936 in a variety of academic journals, many of which are now difficult to obtain. The editors have checked and, where necessary, supplemented and updated all the references and corrected errors in them, but have otherwise presented each paper, in full, with the minimum of editorial comment. At the end of Volume III there are very elaborate and comprehensive indexes of passages, words and topics discussed by Houston. The Kleine Schriften of great scholars are among the most important and useful tools of the classicist's trade. This edition will be of the first importance among such collections and will provide an essential work of reference. Housman's known virtues as a textual critic are decisively confirmed and emphasized now that his papers can be seen in one complete and connected sequence
Euripides, Phaethon by James Diggle( Book )

27 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The surviving text of the fragmentary Phaethon of Euripides depends chiefly on two sources: two pages from a Euripidean manuscript, written about A.D. 500, and a papyrus of the third century B.C., which contains a substantial part of the parodos. These sources are supplemented by a number of citations in classical authors and by a recently published fragmentary hypothesis. Professor Diggle has examined all the manuscript evidence and offers many decipherments. He gives a text of the play and of the hypothesis, an exegetical commentary, prolegomena and appendices, in which he discusses the treatment of the Phaethon myth in classical literature and attempts a reconstruction of the plot of the play

Euripidea : collected essays by James Diggle( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Diggle is one of the foremost Euripidean scholars of our time. His ground-breaking Studies on the Text of Euripides, culminating in his new edition of the complete plays in the Oxford Classical Texts series, have won him a world-wide reputation. This collection comprises forty-one papers and reviews (including five papers not previously published), designed as a companion to the new Oxford text. The published papers and reviews have been lightly revised and updated, and equipped with copious cross-references. There are full indexes. The collection not only offers a commentary on an extensive range of problematic passages in the plays; it also provides an up-to-date grammar of Euripidean usage - linguistic, stylistic, and metrical - and deals with many aspects of the manuscript tradition. It will be an indispensable handbook for all future scholars of Euripides
The Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Regarded by many as Euripides' masterpiece, Bakkhai examines both the horror and the beauty of the religious ecstasy that Dionysos brings to Thebes. His offer of closeness to nature and freedom from the constraints of civilization, especially for women, excites bitter resistance as well as fanatical acceptance." "Disguised as a young holy man and accompanied by his band of Asian worshipers, the god Dionysos arrives in Greece at Thebes, proclaims his godhood and his new religion, and drives the Theban women mad. When the Theban king, Pentheus, tries to imprison him, Dionysos afflicts Pentheus himself with madness and leads him, dressed as a bacchant, to the mountains, where his own mother, Agaue, and her companions tear him to pieces in an insane Bacchic frenzy."
