1 Aristophanes; Kenneth James Dover (Ed. ) ARISTOPHANES: FROGS Edited with Introduction and Commentary
Oxford Clarendon Press 1993 0198147732 / 9780198147732 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Clipped obituary of Dover tipped in. Includes Programme for play of Aristophanes Frogs from 1988 by King's College London Department of Classics tipped in. Faint foxing. DJ has very minor shelfwear. ; Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on Classical Greek attitudes toward tragedy and literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, and the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play. In this introduction, edition, and commentary, Sir Kenneth Dover presents the relevant data, arguments, and considerations as fully as can reasonably be done in one volume. ; 9 x 1 x 6 Inches; 398 pages
