Sophocles, the second of the three 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 a collection of all the major fragments, ranging in length from two lines to a very substantial portion of the satyr play The Searchers.

Sophocles, the second of the three 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 a collection of all the major fragments, ranging in length from two lines to a very substantial portion of the satyr play The Searchers. Prefatory notes provide frameworks for the fragments of 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; Inachus portrays Zeus coming to Argos to seduce Io, the daughter of its king; and Niobe tells how Apollo and his sister Artemis punish Niobe for a slight upon their mother by killing her twelve children. Throughout the volume, as in the extant plays, we see Sophocles drawing his subjects from heroic legend.
This is the final volume of Lloyd-Jones's new Loeb Classical Library edition of Sophocles. In volumes I and II he gives a faithful and very skilful translation of the seven surviving plays. Volume I contains Oedipus Tyrannus, Ajax, and Electra. Volume II contains Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone, The Women of Trachis, and Philoctetes. Книга «Sophocles: Fragments» автора Софокл оценена посетителями КнигоГид, и её читательский рейтинг составил 0.00 из 10.

Древний Египет. Сказания. Притчи
Древний Египет. Сказания. Притчи

До нас дошла лишь незначительная доля произведений некогда богатой и разнообразной литературы Древнего Египта. Она возникла на тысячелетия раньше, чем «Илиада» и «Одиссея» и многие произведения художественного творчества народов Индии и Китая. Почти 4000 лет назад была записана легенда о «Потерпевшем кораблекрушение». Другие тексты, например «Фараон Хуфу и чародеи», записаны, правда, несколько поз...

Идиллии
Идиллии

Феокрит является создателем особого жанра — идиллии (eidyllion). Слово это буквально значит «видик» (уменьшительное от eidos — «вид») и употреблялось в смысле «пьеска», «сценка». Этот жанр ведет начало от мима, но он осложнился новыми элементами. В новое время этому термину придали специальное значение описания жизни спокойной и скромной, добродетельной и свободной от сильных страстей и волнений.

Fables: Babrius and Phaedrus
Fables: Babrius and Phaedrus

Babrius is the reputed author of a collection (discovered in the 19th century) of more than 125 fables based on those called Aesop's, in Greek verse. He may have been a hellenised Roman living in Asia Minor during the late 1st century of our era. The fables are all in one metre and in very good style, humorous and pointed. Some are original. Phaedrus, born in Macedonia, flourished in the ...

His exact dates are unknown, but he has often been considered a younger contemporary of Homer. This volume of the new Loeb Classical Library edition offers a general introduction, a fluid translation facing an improved Greek text of Hesiod's two extant poems, and a generous selection of t...

Catullus. Tibullus. Pervigilium Veneris

Catullus (Gaius Valerius, 84–54 BCE), of Verona, went early to Rome, where he associated not only with other literary men from Cisalpine Gaul but also with Cicero and Hortensius. His surviving poems consist of nearly sixty short lyrics, eight longer poems in various metres, and almost fifty epigrams. All exemplify a strict technique of studied composition inherited from early Greek lyric and the p...

Greek Iambic Poetry: From the Seventh to the Fifth Centuries B.C.
Greek Iambic Poetry: From the Seventh to the Fifth Centuries B.C.

The poetry of the archaic period that the Greeks called iambic is characterized by scornful criticism of friend and foe and by sexual license. The purpose of these poems is unclear, but they seem to have some connection with cult songs used in religious festivals--for example, those honoring Dionysus and Demeter. In this completely new Loeb Classical Library edition of early Greek iambic poetry, D...

Greek Lyric: Anacreon, Anacreontea, Choral Lyric from Olympus to Alcman

The five volumes in the Loeb Classical Library edition of Greek Lyric contain the surviving fragments of solo and choral song. This poetry was not preserved in medieval manuscripts, and few complete poems remain. Later writers quoted from the poets, but only so much as suited their needs; these quotations are supplemented by papyrus texts found in Egypt, most of them badly damaged. The high qualit...
