Scrinium Classical Antiquity
(Aalten, Netherlands)

Book Description Condition: Antiquarian. Vantage Press, New York (.), 1984. XII,161p. Cloth. Small personal library mark and name on free endpaper. (Rare). 'Kiso seeks by bold reconstruction of some plays to show that the single-minded hero is not Sophocles? only protagonist. (?) Reconstructed plays are presented in chapters each dealing with a neglected area of Sophocles? work: in the first theomachy in Ajax is extended to Niobe, Thamyras and Ajax Locrus; the second examines changes of mind in Epigonoi which may be analogous to Philoctetes and Antigone; Tereus in the third is used to show Sophocles? interest in foreigners; the fourth wrestles with the ambiguities of Philoctetes (?); chapter five looks at topicality in Sopocles (?) and at the irrational (?). K.?s general assertions are balanced and reasonable.' (JOHN WILKINS in The Classical Review (New Series), 1986, p.12-13). From the library of the late Sir Kenneth James Dover. Antiquarian.
