Overview

Choephori / Edition 1

This new edition of Choephori takes into account the abundance of recent scholarship on Aeschylus' work. A. F. Garvie's introduction discusses the pre-Aeschylean Orestes tradition in literature and art, the character of the play itself—its ideas, imagery, structure, and staging—and the state of the transmitted text. This edition reprints the Greek text and critical apparatus from the well-received Oxford Classical Text, edited by D. L. Page, and includes 350 pages of commentary devoted to problems of interpretation, style and dramatic technique.

This edition of Greek text edited by Garvie is quite good. It includes an EXTENSIVE commentary...some parts of which are better than others. Garvie seems to abandon logic and sense in some of his comments but generally demonstrates his uncommonly strong grasp of Greek language. It's all there, iota adscripts and lunate sigmas!
