Chapter Summary

The controversial passage Septem 803-21, by general consent compoundly corrupt and including at least some apparently dittographic interpolation, has been variously treated by editors. In this chapter a partly new proposal was advocated, ordering the lines. This has been for the most part superseded by the editions of Hutchinson (1985) and West (1990). For almost all the other plays of Euripides (notably Helen), and for several of Aeschylus, he wrote on the text and metre of individual lyric passages or whole odes. In addition, he wrote extensively on issues of text, interpretation, and interpolation, in the non-lyric parts of tragedy.
