  • Euripides 3 Volume Paperback Set. Cambridge University Press, 2010. 1906p. 3 Paperback books. Series: Cambridge Library Collection - Classics. Frederick Apthorp Paley (1815–1888) published his three-volume English commentary on Euripides between 1857 and 1860. Each play is preceded by an introductory essay, and accompanied by a line-by-line commentary at the foot of each page of Greek text. Paley discusses Euripides' language and style, explaining difficult grammatical structures, syntax and vocabulary; poetic form and Euripides' innovative approach to composing tragedy; textual variation between manuscripts; the historical and literary context of each play; and their reception history. Paley's work greatly influenced Euripidean scholarship: for over a century it was a widely used teaching tool in schools and universities. An outstanding piece of classical scholarship and a key text in the history of Euripidean interpretation, it deserves continued consideration by future generations of scholars and students.
