Overview

Designed primarily to be used along­side a standard school text of the Antig­one, this first extensive commentary since the Jebb 1891 edition represents a new concept in text commentary. The work is built around seven selected passages specifically chosen to illustrate the poet’s diction, the play’s ironic structure, and the antagonists’ charac­ter. Grammatical notes, a compre­hensive commentary on the literary, philosophical, and historical aspects of the play, and a vocabulary to all the Greek words that appear in the play are designed to acquaint the intermediate student of Greek with the peculiarities of tragic diction and vocabulary.
