Gibson, Craig A.

Interpreting a classic

This book collects, translates and offers explanatory notes on all the substantial fragments of ancient philological and historical commentaries on Demosthenes. Using these texts to illuminate an important aspect of Graeco-Roman antiquity that has hitherto been difficult to glimpse, Gibson gives a detailed portrait of a scholarly industry that touched generations of ancient readers from the 1st century BC to the 5th century and beyond.In this lucidly organized work, Gibson surveys the physical form of the commentaries, traces the history of how they were passed down and explains their sources, interests and readership. He also includes a complete collection of Greek texts, English translations and detailed notes on the commentaries.
