About 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 each 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. Ruby Blondell, who provides the new Introduction to this volume, is Professor of Classics in the University of Washington, Seattle. She has published widely on Greek tragedy and translated Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone (under the name Mary Whitlock Blundell) and King Oedipus (1990, 1998 and forthcoming).

Cant open it

The introduction and notes are in English and are mostly readable. But the body of the play is in Greek and did not OCR at all. The result is pure gibberish.

The play's a must-read, but you'll find this copy illegible, as multiple previous, honest reviewers have noted. Beware of: 1. Poorly digitized copies, like this one, that are illegible. Shame on BN for letting this horrendous version should in the NOOK Store! 2. "Reviewers" who shill for whoever published this awful copy. 3. Reviewers of the story itself, who haven't bothered to even skim this copy. If they bothered, they'd warn you to find a better formatted (read: legible) copy elsewhere.
