James Diggle is well known among classicists as one of the foremost Euripidean scholars of our time. His ground-breaking studies on the text of Euripides, culminating in his new edition of the complete plays in the Oxford Classical Texts series, have won him a wide reputation as one of the leading authorities on Euripides. This collection comprises forty one papers and reviews (including five papers not previously published) designed as a companion to the Oxford Text. The published papers and reviews have been lightly revised and updated and equipped with copious cross-references. There are full indexes. The collection not only offers a commentary on an extensive range of problematic passages in the plays; it also provides an up-to-date grammar of Euripidean usage - linguistic, stylistic, and metrical - and deals with many aspects of the manuscript tradition. It will be an indispensable handbook for all future serious students of Euripides.

Industry Reviews

`The book is essentially a collection of material scattered in many periodicals, some not readily available. It will serve as an indispensable companion to the text for readers seeking amplification in moments of surprise or scepticism at D.'s readings. D,'s knowledge of, and feeling for, Euripidean idiom are formidable. In the papers of this impeccably produced book the scholarship is meticulously precise, the argumentation watertight, the expression pellucid. The reviewer is left with little more to say.' E.M. Craik, Classical Review, Vol. XLVI, No. 2, '96
