Tragedy, Euripides and Euripideans

edited by Christopher Collard

Liverpool University Press

This new volume represents forty years of scholarship. Of the twenty papers collected here, thirteen explore tragedy in general and Euripides in particular, but with emphasis on textual questions - transmission, interpretation, verbal criticism - and dramatic form. The other seven evaluate important Euripidean scholars from the 17th to the 19th centuries including Joshua Barnes, Jeremiah Markland, S. Musgrave, Peter Elmsely and J.H. Monk.The book's material is divided into three thematic sections: 'Tragedy', 'Euripides' and 'Euripideans'. All papers have been corrected and revised, and supplemented with further matter, chiefly a recent and full biography.
