2 Aeschylus; H. D. Broadhead (Ed. ) THE PERSAE OF AESCHYLUS Edited with Introduction, Critical Notes and Commentary
Cambridge University Press 1960 0521040108 / 9780521040105 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Light edgewear to corners. Light rubbing to boards. Former owner's name on ffep. Scholar's name to ffep (Martin Cropp). Pencil marginalia to a few pages. Lettering to spine slightly rubbed. ; 424 pages; The Persae is the oldest of surviving plays and its subject matter is unique in ancient drama, since it is concerned with a recent historical event, the defeat of the Persians at Salamis; yet before the publication of this work in 1960, there had been no edition suitable for university students and scholars. This major edition - the first to be attempted on such a scale - incorporated much material that former editions had neglected, including a number of textual suggestions and elucidations. In his introduction, Dr Broadhead assesses the Persae as a work of dramatic art, considers how far Aeschylus' patriotism has coloured his presentation of the tragedy, discusses the possibility that the play is part of a tetralogy, and reviews the evidence for a Sicilian text. He also explains the principles followed in establishing the text, which is accompanied by select critical notes. There is a full-scale commentary, which takes account of the scholarship that was current when this volume was first published. The appendices form an important supplement, and include a conspectus of metres; notes on spirit raising, the tragic kommos, and Persian names; and an account of the battle of Salamis.
