This new edition of Choephori takes into account the abundance of recent scholarship on Aeschylus' work. A. F. Garvie's introduction discusses the pre-Aeschylean Orestes tradition in literature and art, the character of the play itself—its ideas, imagery, structure, and staging—and the state of the transmitted text. This edition reprints the Greek text and critical apparatus from the well-received Oxford Classical Text, edited by D. L. Page, and includes 350 pages of commentary devoted to problems of interpretation, style and dramatic technique.
