Publisher's Description

A Companion to Sophocles presents the first comprehensive collection of essays in decades to address all aspects of the life, works, and critical reception of Sophocles.
  • First collection of its kind to provide introductory essays to the fragments of his lost plays and to the remaining fragments of one satyr-play, the Ichneutae, in addition to each of his extant tragedies
  • Features new essays on Sophoclean drama that go well beyond the current state of scholarship on Sophocles
  • Presents readings that historicize Sophocles in relation to the social, cultural, and intellectual world of fifth century Athens
  • Seeks to place later interpretations and adaptations of Sophocles in their historical context
  • Includes essays dedicated to issues of gender and sexuality; significant moments in the history of interpreting Sophocles; and reception of Sophocles by both ancient and modern playwrights

Author Bio

Kirk Ormand is Professor of Classics at Oberlin. He is author of Exchange and the Maiden: Marriage in Sophoclean Tragedy (1999), Controlling Desires: Sexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome (2009), and The Hesiodic Catalogue of Women and Archaic Greece (2014).

Editorial Reviews

“This volume will indeed serve as an indispensable reference point for the future study of Sophocles.”  (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1 January 2013)

“Although the book is scholarly and packed with information, it is accessible to nonspecialists.  Summing Up: Highly recommended.  Upper-division undergraduates and above.”  (Choice, 1 November 2012)
