Product Description


Boyle's commentary offers a fresh view of this play that reveals Senecas own fresh interpretation of the Oedipus myth. When he needs to prove a point, Boyle is concise and clear in his argumentation and, when commenting on passages, he is fluid in moving between grammatical/syntactical details and meatier subjects. The notes offer a rich supply of pertinent information and will be of great use to scholars working on the play. (Christopher Trinacty, Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

The first English commentary on Seneca's Oedipus has been written by A. J. Boyle, probably the best contemporary authority on Seneca's tragedies ... The commentary, literally packed with information of all kinds, is astonishing ... Boyle's masterly work will be difficult to surmount. (Eva Stehlíková, Listy Filologické)

About the Author

A. J. Boyle is Professor of Classics at the University of Southern California.

Review of Boyle's Oedipus (Seneca) 25 April 2013
By Ryan Mease - Published on
Format: Paperback
A better edition is hardly possible. The introduction is excellent (thorough but balanced), the text is accompanied by a very basic and readable English translation that aids one's tour through the Latin text, and the end-commentary is incredibly rich. Seneca's Oedipus isn't a very popular work, but this will quickly become a standard among scholars (not for student's though, since the facing English will keep this text out of the classroom.)
