R C Jebb

R.C. Jebb, Regius Professor of Greek and Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, was one of the foremost classicists of the Victorian era. His editions of Sophocles plays appeared in the last fifteen years of the nineteenth century. They are distinguished by the sensitivity of Jebb s literary and dramatic interpretations, and the neat translation facing the Greek text. They have had a profound influence on subsequent Sophoclean scholarship.
