Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones was Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford University from 1960 to 1989. A scholar of commanding intelligence and learning, he has made important contributions to our knowledge of ancient Greece across the full range from textual analysis to Greek religion and the classical tradition. In September 1997 a group of his friends, mostly former pupils and established scholars themselves, gathered to celebrate his seventy-fifth birthday and to offer him a set of papers on Sophocles, an author especially close to his heart. This volume collects those papers, which give very varied approaches to the poet, his work, and his influence. Professor Bernard Knox contributes a portrait of Sir Hugh as a scholar and a man as an introduction to the volume.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a clearly focused volume, which has much to offer to anybody interested in Sophocles and Greek tragedy. * Felix Budelmann, Classical Rev. *
The collection opens with what might well become a standard article on gods in Sophocles. * Felix Budelmann, Classical Rev. *
In short, this is a pleasingly unified festschrift with some pieces that are likely to become standard points of reference - a worthy present for one of the most prominent Sophoclean scholars today. * Felix Budelmann, Classical Rev. *
All in all, the book is worthy of the eminent scholar to whose honour it is dedicated. * G Roskam, Les Etudes Classiques, University of Namur. *
Precise scholarship provide the point of reference for thirteen thought-provoking essays... This is where literary scholarship should be going. * Michael Silk, TLS 28/07/2000 *
