Omtale: A Companion to Sophocles
A Companion to Sophocles presents the first comprehensive collection of essays in decades to address all aspects of the life, works, and critical reception of Sophocles. * First collection of its kind to provide introductory essays to the fragments of his lost plays and to the remaining fragments of one satyr-play, the Ichneutae, in addition to each of his extant tragedies * Features new essays on Sophoclean drama that go well beyond the current state of scholarship on Sophocles * Presents readings that historicize Sophocles in relation to the social, cultural, and intellectual world of fifth century Athens * Seeks to place later interpretations and adaptations of Sophocles in their historical context * Includes essays dedicated to issues of gender and sexuality; significant moments in the history of interpreting Sophocles; and reception of Sophocles by both ancient and modern playwrights
