This original and lively book explores Greek ideas about health and disease and their influence on Greek thought. Fundamental issues such as causation and responsibility, purification and pollution, mind-body relations and gender differences, authority and the expert and who can challenge them, reality and appearances, good government, happiness, and good and evil themselves are deeply implicated. Using the evidence not just from Greek medical theory and practice but also from epic, lyric, tragedy, historiography, philosophy, and religion, G. E. R. Lloyd offers the first comprehensive account of the influence of Greek thought about health and disease on the Greek imagination.

Bilingual Selections from Sophocles' Antigone

An innovative teaching tool for beginning students and text for comparatists lacking facility in Greek, this inter­linear translation of seven related pas­sages provides an introduction to the art of Sophocles. In addition, a long introductory essay on the dimensions of the play analyzes Antigone’s androgy­nous nature. The passages chosen readily illustrate Sophocles’ diction and style and the play’s ironic structure. They also reveal the characters of the antagonists. Three are character studies of the heroine. Another, the famed Ode on Man, re­veals some of the dramatist’s deepest thoughts. O’Brien provides summaries of inter­vening portions of the play, the Greek alphabet, and a grammatical appendix. A transliteration of two passages—the Prologue and the Ode on Man—is de­signed to help the beginner learn the Greek alphabet and to show combined or elided words in their complete form.

Sophocles' Ajax describes the fall of a mighty warrior denied the honour which he believed was his due. This edition of the play presents a text and critical apparatus which take full advantage of advances in our understanding of Sophoclean manuscripts and scholarship. The introduction and commentary scrutinise all important aspects of the drama - from detailed analysis of style, language, and metre to consideration of wider issues such as ethics, rhetoric, and characterisation. Notorious dramaturgical problems, including the staging of Ajax's suicide, receive particular attention; so too do questions of literary history, such as the date of the play and Sophocles' creative interaction with previous accounts of the myth. The translation which accompanies the commentary ensures that this edition will be accessible to Hellenists of all levels of experience, as well as to readers with a general interest in the history of drama.
