Electra, Paperback / softback Book

Electra Paperback / softback

Part of the Classic Commentaries on Latin & Greek Texts S. series

Paperback / softback


This is one of the seven plays of Sophocles in the full editions by R.C.

Jebb, all of which will be reissued under the BCP imprint.

They have occasionally been reprinted but never before in affordable paperback versions.

In this set, each volume contains a foreword by P.E.

Easterling, concerned with Jebb and his contribution to Sophoclean scholarship; there follows an introduction by a noted Sophoclean scholar dealing with Jebb's treatment of the individual play and its value for - and contrast with - subsequent interpretations, for which a select bibliography is included.
