From the Back Cover
Sophocles. Tragoediae. In usum Scholarum The new Teubner text of Sophocles is the third edition made by R.D. Dawe of Trinity College, Cambridge. The plays now appear separately, in soft covers, at a price which makes them especially suitable for University use. The apparatus criticus records some of the many meritorious suggestions from the past, which Dr. van Paassen's collection has brought to light. The text itself has been drafted on more adventurous principles than before, to offer something smoother and more readable for the less advanced students, and something more provocative of thought for their mentors, in the belief that lively disagreement, if disagreement is called for, is more valuable than unquestioning acquiescence.
