Odysseus unbound : the search for Homer's Ithaca by Robert Bittlestone( Book )

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 )

23 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 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 )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 439 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 314 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
Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new versions remain faithful to the original Greek, yet the language has all the immediacy of contemporary English. The result is a series of genuinely actable plays, which bring students as close as possible to the playwrights' original words and intentions." "Students are encouraged to engage with the text through detailed commentaries, which include suggestions for discussion and analysis. In addition, numerous practical questions stimulate ideas on staging and encourage students to explore the play's dramatic qualities." "Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama is suitable for students of both Classical Civilization and Drama. Useful features include: full synopsis of the play; commentary alongside translation for easy reference; time line to set the play in its historical context; guide to pronunciation of names; and index of topics and themes."--Jacket
