Sophocles’ Electra, Commentary by Hanna M. Roisman, Oxford Greek and Latin College Commentaries, Oxford University Press.

This commentary offers grammatical and syntactical explanations as well as translations for the Greek text. In order to enable further study, references to relevant grammar and syntax books are included. The commentary also offers running vocabulary in the Notes and in the Glossary.

“This edition of Sophocles’ Electra will be very useful for students at the advanced or intermediate level and also for those somewhat more advanced readers who wish to make their way through the play without frequently resorting to the dictionary or getting stuck trying to figure out an aorist participle (vel sim). There is really no comparable commentary on this play.”
