Language and Thought in Sophocles. A study of abstract nouns and poetic technique.
Athlone Press, University of London, 1968. XIV,186p. Cloth wrps. Some light stains on upper edge. With signature from Prof. W.G. Arnott as well as date on free endpaper. (Rare). 'A mechanical approach to such a topic might be unrewarding, or at least dull, but Dr. Long’s little book is both valuable and fascinating. He has not only the technical equipment, but also the feeling for style that the task demands, and he writes so clearly and elegantly that his book makes most agreeable reading. (…) Long observes that Sophocles increased use of abstract nouns in his later work reflects a general development in Greek during his lifetime, and that some features of it are paralleled only in Thucydides and other contemporary prose writers.' (HUGH LLOYD-JONES in The Classical Review (New Series), 1969, p.34-35). From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott.
