Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume is an excellent addition to an excellent series."
The Classical Journal

"This excellent commentary by Seth Schein … deserves to become both a frequent point of reference for scholars and a welcome resource for teachers and their pupils. Undergraduate students reading the play with me this term have reacted very positively to the book, especially to its careful explanation of the Greek and its full discussion of the play's dramatic and literary qualities … Schein has thought hard about what his target audience needs, and the fruits of that thinking are everywhere palpable."
P. J. Finglass, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Meet the Author

Richard Clavarhouse Jebb, Regius Professor of Greek and Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, was one of the foremost classicists of the Victorian era. His editions of Sophocles' plays appeared in the last fifteen years of the 19th century. They are distinguished by the sensitivity of Jebb's literary and dramatic interpretations, and the neat translation facing the Greek text. They have had a profound influence on subsequent Sophoclean scholarship. P.E. Easterling, editor of this series and author of the new Foreword to this volume, is Regius Professor of Greek in the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Newnham College. She is general editor of the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics series. Felix Budelmann, author of the new introduction, received his PhD from the University of Cambridge, dealing specifically with the Philoctetes. He has subsequently been lecturer in the University of Manchester.
