6 editions published between 1889 and 1960 in 3 languages and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophocles' Philoctetes is one of the most widely read Greek tragedies today but is a complex and challenging play to interpret. Its representation of Philoctetes as a sufferer of physical and emotional pain gives it remarkable power and intensity. It juxtaposes Homeric and fifth-century institutions and values, explores honor, power and expediency as principles of personal and political life, and represents contrasts and conflicts between innocence and experience, ends and means, and the needs and demands of the individual and those of society. This edition with commentary makes the play accessible to students, teachers, and other readers of Greek literature at all levels. The introduction discusses the main problems of interpretation and gives an account of its reception from antiquity to the present day
Zur Revision der Frage der caesura medie im jambischen Trimeter des Euripides by S Mekler( Book )

6 editions published in 1878 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medea by Euripides( Book )

5 editions published in 1886 in Greek, Ancient and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all the Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood." "Medea is a story of betrayal and vengeance, and one which gives an excellent example of the prominence and complexity that Euripides gave to his female characters. Medea, wife of Jason, is incensed that her husband would leave her to make a political marriage after the many sacrifices she has made for him. In her wrath, she murders both his new bride and their own children, thus taking her revenge. This new translation does full justice to the lyricism of Euripides' original work, while a new introduction provides a guide to the play, complete with interesting details about the traditions and social issues that influenced Euripides' world."--Jacket
