Synopses & Reviews
Present-day research is gradually finding a new approach to Isocrates, the 4th-century Greek orator who due to the influence of Plato was largely neglected in the 19th and part of the 20th century. His Euagoras, an encomium of the Cypriot king Euagoras I, had a decisive influence on the establishment and development of the prose encomium. This volume presents the first modern edition and commentary of Isocrates' Euagoras. It offers a detailed introduction, the Greek text and an interpretational commentary.
