Sophocles: Selected Fragmentary Plays

Volume I

Translated with Commentary by David Fitzpatrick, Thomas Talboy, and Alan H. Sommerstein

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

The Athenian tragic dramatist Sophocles wrote over 120 plays in his sixty-year career, of which only seven have survived complete. This volume presents what is known, or can be inferred or conjectured, about half a dozen plays known to us only from quotations, indirect references, and occasionally a papyrus.
