Review:

"The significance of volumes of collected papers in the Classics covers a broad range: some are indifferent, some are indefensible, some are indispensable. This splendid gathering between two boards of the dense "Kleine Schriften" of Sir Charles Willink (1929-2009) is very firmly of the last category. The importance of Willink s researches for scholars of Greek tragedy and/or metre has been immense over recent decades" [...] "The book with which this formidable volume has most in common is John Jackson s "Marginalia Scaenica" (1955), a collection" [...] "that amply bears witness to what a clear head, hard thought and "curiosa felicitas" (as much as felix curiositas) in emendation can bring the scholar." David Butterfield in "BMCR," 31.5.2012"

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Sir Charles Willink was responsible for some of the most important advances in the study of the text and metre of Greek tragedy published in the last fifty years. With his unrivalled knowledge of tragic usage and ear for subtle rhythmical points, he was able to solve long-standing problems in areas ranging from metrical analysis to staging and the detection of interpolations, and many of his proposals have already been adopted in standard editions. This volume collects all Willink s published papers, except the two earliest, which are summarized. Three important new articles, on Euripides Helen, Medea, and Alcestis, are published for the first time, and additions and corrections to the published papers are included, together with an index of passages discussed.
