Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the critical studies in the Cantica of Sophocles I. Antigone. By 'the vulgate' in this first of three articles the author means 'at least a majority of the general Sophocles editions of Jebb, Pearson, Dawe, Kamerbeek, and LJ/W, and also Brown and Griffith for Antigone in particular'. Metrical terms and notational symbols used are mostly as defined by West in his GM; and for orthographica, unless otherwise stated, the author follows West's preface to his Aeschyli Tragoediae. Short references are used also for the studies (especially metrical) of Dale, Stinton, Parker, Itsumi, Buijs and Pohlsander. Indentation is used for lines of verse either synartete with the preceding (following either a hyphen or elision) or otherwise continuative as the second or later limb of a dicolon or tricolon (a status not always objectively determinable); illumination of structure is always the primary consideration.

Keywords: Antigone; Cantica; Aeschyli Tragoediae; metrical terms; notational symbols; Sophocles
