Chapter Summary

The author presents the snapshots of a time in the history of classics, and if it was difficult for the students of 1970 Toronto to imagine what the future would hold, so it is worth reminding the present youth how far away they are from the mentality of graduate study in 1970 Canada, with its traditions and certainties. Martin Cropp's earlier work in the 70s and 80s dealt primarily with questions of text and arose from the kind of work he did for his doctoral thesis on the Herakles, and his central concern has always been about details of establishing of a text and its meaning, the traditional study of classical scholars of literature. The author has an excellent example as Professor Kovacs in the footsteps of Dodds asks about as basic a question as any critic can ask, the role of Apollo in the Oedipus Tyrannus.

Keywords: ancient texts; classical Greek; Martin Cropp; Oedipus Tyrannus; Professor Kovacs
