Sophocles Revisited: Essays Presented to Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones

Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones was Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford University from 1960 to 1989. He has made important contributions to our knowledge of ancient Greece. In September 1997 a group of former pupils and scholars offered him a set of papers on Sophocles in honor of is seventy-fifth birthday. This volume collects those papers, which give varied approaches to the poet, his work, and his influence.
