Sophocles Antigone (Classic Reprint)

 
9781440070570: Sophocles Antigone (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Sophocles Antigone

This edition of the Antigone is based upon Gustav Wolff's second edition, Leipzig, 1873.

In most cases where the text varies from his, the readings of the Laurentian Ms. (L) have been adopted in preference to those of inferior Mss. or to conjectures of Wolff and other editors. The reasons for these changes are given in the Appendix, which it is hoped furnishes sufficient material for an intelligent appreciation of the most important problems in the textual criticism of the play. For the purpose of facilitating comparison, the rejected readings of Wolff are placed at the foot of the text. Through lack of such an aid as the Facsimile of the Laurentian Codex, now in course of preparation, it has been necessary to take the variants of the Mss. at second or third hand, chiefly from the edition of Campbell.

The Commentary has been adapted to the needs of that large number of students who begin their study of Greek tragedy with this play.

The lyric parts have been arranged on the basis of the rhythmical scheme which has been borrowed from Schmidt's Rhythmic and Metric, translated by Professor John Williams White.

Material has been taken freely from the editions of Bellermann, Campbell, Nauck, Wecklein, and Dindorf.

The editor takes pleasure in expressing his grateful obligations to his colleague, Professor Elisha Jones, for the use of critical apparatus; and to his pupil, Mr. Walter Miller, A.M., for generous service in verifying references.

From the Back Cover:

In his long life, Sophocles (born ca. 496 B.C., died after 413) wrote more than one hundred plays. Of these, seven complete tragedies remain, among them the famed Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus. In Antigone, he reveals the fate that befalls the children of Oedipus.
Polynices, son of Oedipus, has led a rebellious army against his brother, Eteocles, ruler of Thebes. Both have died in single combat. When Creon, their uncle, assumes rule, he commands that the body of the rebel Polynices be left unburied and unmourned, and warns that anyone who tampers with his decree will be put to death.
Antigone, sister of Polynices, defies Creon's order and buries her brother, claiming that she honors first the laws of the gods. Enraged, Creon condemns her to be sealed in a cave and left to die. How the gods take their revenge on Creon provides the gripping denouement to this compelling, frequently performed  tragedy.
