Antigone. The Women of Trachis. Philoctetes. Oedipus at Colonus (Hardcover): Sophocles Antigone. The Women of Trachis. Philoctetes. Oedipus at Colonus (Hardcover)
Sophocles; Edited by Hugh Lloyd-Jones
R537 Discovery Miles 5 370 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Sophocles (497/6-406 BCE), with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm--but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end.

Hugh Lloyd-Jones gives us, in two volumes, a new translation of the seven surviving plays. Volume I contains "Oedipus Tyrannus" (which tells the famous Oedipus story), "Ajax" (a heroic tragedy of wounded self-esteem), and "Electra" (the story of siblings who seek revenge on their mother and her lover for killing their father). Volume II contains "Oedipus at Colonus" (the climax of the fallen hero's life), "Antigone" (a conflict between public authority and an individual woman's conscience), "The Women of Trachis" (a fatal attempt by Heracles' wife to regain her husband's love), and "Philoctetes" (Odysseus's intrigue to bring an unwilling hero to the Trojan War).

Of his other plays, only fragments remain; but from these much can be learned about Sophocles' language and dramatic art. The major fragments--ranging in length from two lines to a very substantial portion of the satyr play "The Searchers"--are collected in Volume III of this edition. In prefatory notes Lloyd-Jones provides frameworks for the fragments of known plays.

Fragments (Hardcover): Sophocles Fragments (Hardcover)
Sophocles; Edited by Hugh Lloyd-Jones
R595 Discovery Miles 5 950 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Sophocles (497/6-406 BC), the second of the great tragedians of Athens and by common consent one of the world's greatest poets, wrote more than 120 plays. Only seven of these survive complete, but we have a wealth of fragments, from which much can be learned about Sophocles' language and dramatic art. This volume presents, in Greek and facing English translation, a collection of all the major fragments, ranging in length from two lines to a very substantial portion of the play "The Searchers". Prefatory notes provide frameworks for the fragments of the known plays. Many of the Sophoclean fragments were preserved by quotation in other authors; others, some of considerable size, are known to us from papyri discovered during the past century. Among the lost plays of which we have large fragments, "The Searchers" shows the god Hermes, soon after his birth playing an amusing trick on his brother Apollo; and "Niobe" tells how Apollo and Artemis punish Niobe for a slight upon their mother, kiling her twelve children. Throughout the volume, we see Sophocles drawing his subjects from legend.

R170 Discovery Miles 1 700 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Another adventure for the intrepid time traveller. While visiting a Galactic Tollport, the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and Mel (Bonnie Langford) win a trip to Disneyland in 1959. On board the spacebus they meet Chimeron queen Delta, whose people have been wiped out by mercenary Gavrok (Don Henderson) and his men. Knocked off course by a satellite, the bus in fact delivers its passengers to the Shangri-La holiday camp in Fifties Wales, but while the Doctor becomes determined to make the most of the break - and Delta embarks on a romance with Earth mechanic Billy - Gavrok is not far behind. Watch out for a guest appearance by Ken Dodd as the Tollmaster.

This new text of Sophocles is the product of many years of close collaboration between the two editors. The evidence of the manuscript tradition has been carefully assessed, and the results of one important discovery have been exploited for the first time. It has also been possible to take account of many little known or forgotten conjectures. A number of other conjectures are correctly attributed for the first time, and in a few passages the editors have ventured to offer proposals of their own.

The Oresteia (Paperback): Aeschylus The Oresteia (Paperback)
Aeschylus; Translated by Hugh Lloyd-Jones
R393 Discovery Miles 3 930 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The most famous series of ancient Greek plays, and the only surviving trilogy, is the Oresteia of Aeschylus, consisting of Agamemnon, Choephoroe, and Eumenides. These three plays recount the murder of Agamemnon by his queen Clytemnestra on his return from Troy with the captive Trojan princess Cassandra; the murder in turn of Clytemnestra by their son Orestes; and Orestes' subsequent pursuit by the Avenging Furies (Eumenides) and eventual absolution. Hugh Lloyd-Jones's informative notes elucidate the text, and introductions to each play set the trilogy against the background of Greek religion as a whole and Greek tragedy in particular, providing a balanced assessment of Aeschylus's dramatic art. This superior translation should be read by every student of Greek civilization, classical literature, and drama.

Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones has a worldwide reputation as one of the foremost classical scholars of his generation. This collection of papers, which follows on from the two volumes published in 1990, reflects his exceptionally wide interests in the fields of Greek epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, Hellenistic literature, religion, and intellectual history.

Humphry Trevelyan; Foreword by Hugh Lloyd-Jones
R851 Discovery Miles 8 510 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

'The revolution that is going on in me is that which has taken place in every artist who has studied Nature long and diligently and now seeks the remains of the great spirit of antiquity; his soul wells up, he feels a transfiguration of himself from within, a feeling of freer life, higher existence, lightness and grace.' It is Mr Trevelyan's purpose, in this profoundly interesting book, to trace the course of this development in Goethe, to determine its extent, to test its sincerity. To this task he brings, not only a complete knowledge of Goethe's life and works and of classical literature, but also a fine critical sense which enables him to direct his detailed knowledge towards a philosophical conclusion.' So wrote Herbert Read in The Spectator in December 1941 on the first publication of Goethe and the Greeks. Trevalyan's account of Goethe's fascination with the Greeks, his striving to master their culture, his vision of Hellenic man, is judged not to have been supplanted by any later work in English. Professor Lloyd-Jones has written a substantial Foreword for this reissue of Trevelyan's book, giving his own assessment of Goethe's search for Hellenism and its influence on his work.

R5,292 Discovery Miles 52 920 Out of stock

T. C. W. Stinton was a highly respected classical scholar who died in 1985. He was a Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford, for over thirty years and devoted his life to teaching, inspiring his pupils with his own passionate love for the classics. As well as generously encouraging the work and publications of others, he also spent much time himself in researching and writing, concentrating mainly on Greek tragedy. This volume presents twenty-six of Tom Stinton's essays and reviews, mainly on Greek tragedy, covering his work from 1960 until his death in 1985. The papers include `Euripides and the Judgement of Paris', `The Scope and Limits of Allusion in Greek Tragedy', `The Apotheosis of Heracles from the Pyre', and `Greek Tragic Texts and the Limits of Conservatism'. Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones, formerly Regius Professor of Greek in the University of Oxford, has written a foreword especially for this collection.
