Sophocle by Sophocles( Book )

117 editions published between 1 and 1985 in 6 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical scholar and philologist Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848), professor of classics at Leipzig, was especially influential in the fields of Greek grammar and poetical metres. He was among the leading scholars who argued that an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages was crucial for understanding the intellectual life of the ancient world, and should be the chief aim of philology, the study of the development of languages. Only seven of the plays of Aeschylus, the father of Greek tragedy, survive in complete form, and Hermann's was the first critical edition to contain all of them. It was published in Leipzig in two volumes in 1852, four years after his death. Volume 1 contains the texts of all of Aeschylus' tragedies and of Prometheus Bound, of which the authorship is attributed to Aeschylus, and an appendix of notes

Aias = Ajax by Sophocles( Book )

29 editions published between 1885 and 1939 in 4 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brought boldly to life by Herbert Golder and Richard Pevear's translation and contextualized by Herbert Golder's eloquent introduction, this early Sophoclean tragedy tells the story of the Homeric hero better known as Ajax, who was second only to Achilles among the Greek warriors. In Greek tradition, Aias figures as the archaic warrior who dies in shame after his betrayal by the Greeks. Sophocles turns tradition inside out, portraying Aias' suicide not as a disgrace but as heroism. He endows Aias' suicide with a meaning radically different from previous versions of the Aias myth - Aias is not the hero whom time has passed by, but rather the man who steps beyond time. Most previous versions and interpretations have equivocated over Sophocles' bold vision. This edition of Aias translates precisely that transformation of the hero from the bygone figure to the man who transcends time."--Jacket

Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles( Book )

14 editions published between 1885 and 1935 in 4 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life. At the center of the play is the mysterious transformation of Oedipus from an old and blind beggar, totally dependent on his daughters, to the man who rises from his seat and, without help, leads everyone to the place where he is destined to die. In the background of this transformation stands the grove of the Furies, the sacred place of the implacable goddesses who pursue the violators of blood relationships. Although Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, is an obvious target of the Furies' vengeance, he enters their grove at the beginning of the play, sure that it is the resting place Apollo has predicted for him. The reversals and paradoxes in the play speak to the struggle that Oedipus' life and the action of the play bring vividly before us: how do we as humans, subject to constant change, find stable ground on which to stand and define our moral lives? Sophocles offers his play as a witness to the remarkable human capacity to persevere in this struggle."--BOOK JACKET
