A Companion to Sophocles

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
Kirk Ormand is Associate Professor of Classics at Oberlin. He is the author of Exchange and the Maiden: Marriage in Sophoclean Tragedy (1999) and Controlling Desires: Sexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome (2008), as well as articles on Hesiod, Euripides, Lucan, Ovid, and the Greek Novel.
