'the best so far produced ... the editors can be depended upon to distinguish better Greek from worse ... It should hold its place as the standard text for a long time to come.' M.L. West, All Souls College, Oxford, The Classical Review, 1991
'The editors have produced a selective critical commentary of permanent value and a text which will long remain the standard edition of Sophocles.' Greece and Rome
'The new Oxford Classical Text (OCT) of Sophocles and its companion volume, Sophoclea (Soph.), make important contributions to scholarship by the editors' handling of traditional scholarly problems, their lively response to recent work, especially that of R.D. Dawe, and their many original suggestions ... the two volumes under review mark real progress in the study and understanding of Sophocles. Filled with original ideas and the humane assimilation of earlier work, they challenge the contemporary scholar to absorb their contributions and to go on, by means of further collation and rethinking, to understand the text of Sophocles, the process of its survival, and what he might mean to our day.' E. Christian Kopff, University of Colorado, Boulder, American Journal of Philology 114 (1993)
