A commentary on selected speeches of Isaios by Isaeus( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'A commentary on selected speeches of Isaios', Brenda Griffith-Williams offers a fresh insight, accessible to non-Greek readers, into four disputed inheritance cases from the Athenian courts in the 4th century B.C. The only comprehensive English language commentary on Isaios (Wyse, 1904) reflects a negative view of the Athenian legal system as one in which the judges, who had no legal training, could be easily outwitted by an unscrupulous speechwriter with no regard for the truth. By addressing the complex interplay of factual, legal, and rhetorical issues in the selected speeches, Brenda Griffith-Williams identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each speaker's case and presents a more balanced assessment of Isaios's work

Isaeus (c. 420-350 BCE) composed speeches for others. He shares with Lysias pure Attic and lucidity of style, but his more aggressive and flexible presentation undoubtedly influenced Demosthenes. Of at least fifty attributed orations, there survive eleven on legacy cases and a large fragment dealing with a claim of citizenship

Very little is known about the life of the Attic orator Isaeus, who was active during the first half of the fourth century BCE, and many of his speeches have been lost to posterity. Published in 1904, these surviving speeches, presented in the original Greek with extensive commentary by the classical scholar William Wyse (1860-1929), are mostly concerned with the convoluted intrigue of inheritance disputes. Wyse regarded Isaeus as 'an unscrupulous falsifier of law and fact in the service of clients whose claims to the estates they contested were, without exception, fraudulent'. While modern scholars may not fully share this view, Wyse's monumental and learned edition is still a standard work in the study of ancient family law. In addition to a critical introduction, the texts of the speeches, and the detailed commentary, this work also includes family trees to aid understanding of the complex cases

Isaeus' On the estate of Pyrrhus (Oration 3) by Isaeus( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an edition of the third speech of the fourth-century BCE orator Isaeus. It contains a new Greek text, based on a full collation of the manuscript evidence, an English translation, an extensive introduction, and a detailed commentary on the textual, linguistic, legal, rhetorical, stylistic, and historical issues encountered in the speech. The book demonstrates the high level of oratorical skill possessed by the under-appreciated orator Isaeus, and casts light on some exceedingly complex aspects of Athenian family law and society in the fourth century. It is accessible to readers without knowledge of ancient Greek, and is essential reading for anyone interested in Attic oratory, rhetoric, and Athenian law."--Back cover
