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. Rush Rehm is Associate Professor of Drama and Classics at Stanford University. His publications include Greek Tragic Theatre (1992), Marriage to Death: the Conflation of Wedding and Funeral Rituals in Greek Tragedy (1994), Play of Space: Spacial Transformation in Greek Tragedy (2002), and Radical Theatre: Greek Tragedy and the Modern World (forthcoming from Duckworth, 2002). He is also a freelance actor and dirctor.
