Iphigenias at Aulis (Hardback)
Textual Multiplicity, Radical Philology
Sean Gurd offers a new perspective on modern textual criticism of the classics based on the fact that they are constantly in flux as scholars continue to produce new translations and commentaries on the different extant versions and fragment that have survived. He takes the Euripidean tragedy Iphigenias at Aulis as his case study, exploring thirteen different versions of the piece published between 1762 and 2003. Here he offers a means of reading the work 'in the plural'.
