W. S. Barrett (1914-2001) was one of the finest Hellenists of the second half of the twentieth century, known above all for his celebrated edition of Euripides' Hippolytus. This volume of his collected scholarly papers includes five articles published between 1954 and 1978, together with a much larger number of others that remained unpublished in his lifetime and are made known here for the first time. They deal mainly with Greek lyric poetry (Stesichorus,Pindar, Bacchylides) and Tragedy. Students of Greek literature will welcome this unexpected posthumous addition to Barrett's oeuvre, as well as the reappearance of the published articles.
