From Our Editors

Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate.

Editorial Reviews

'Once again D. shows himself master of comedic commentary - original, incisive, detailed, sensible, witty, as with Clouds, the commentary is perceptive, undogmatic, wide-ranging, amusing, unpredictable and a pleasure to read. Particularly welcome are its exquisitely detailed discussion ofmeter, frequent reference to secondary literature, and generous translation of colloquialisms, particles, obscure vocabulary, lyric. This is extraordinarily monument to its author and to the craft of positivist scholarship.'Richard Hamilton, Bryn awr College, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 5.2 (1994)
