Introduction Text and Translation Commentary

About the Author

A. J. Boyle is Professor of Classics at the University of Southern California.


Boyle's commentary offers a fresh view of this play that reveals Senecas own fresh interpretation of the Oedipus myth. When he needs to prove a point, Boyle is concise and clear in his argumentation and, when commenting on passages, he is fluid in moving between grammatical/syntactical details and meatier subjects. The notes offer a rich supply of pertinent information and will be of great use to scholars working on the play. * Christopher Trinacty, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
Scholars of Seneca will indeed find much of importance in the volume ... valuable and timely * R. Scott Smith, Exemplaria Classica *
The first English commentary on Seneca's Oedipus has been written by A. J. Boyle, probably the best contemporary authority on Seneca's tragedies ... The commentary, literally packed with information of all kinds, is astonishing ... Boyle's masterly work will be difficult to surmount. * Eva Stehlikova, Listy Filologicke *
