Requests and Updates for August 2018

What ancillaries or texts would you like to see in the near future?

If there is an ancillary that you need but this site does not provide, please let me know.

Readers have recently recommended Herodotus’ Histories Bk 2, Euripides’ Bacchae, Plato’s Republic Bk 2, and Augustine’s Confessions Bk 1; and the beta editions for Ovid (Daedalus, Daphne) and Caesar (Helvetians) are surprisingly among the most popular downloads on this website. If there is a title that you would like to see in print, contact me.

While any comments made on the website will be published, any emails sent to my gmail account will remain private.

Xenophon’s Anabasis Books 1 and 4, originally posted as beta editions in Spring 2014, are now available in paperback. I have just posted translation sheets and revised vocab flashcards (Quizlet) for Anabasis 1.  Petronius’ Cena Trimalchionis has been available in paperback since June for 10.95 USD. Finally, Aristotle’s NE Books 2 and 3 has been posted on this website as an very early beta edition.

UPDATE: In response to several requests, I am working on a beta edition for  Odyssey 17-20. A completed draft for Odyssey 17-19 is now available from a link at the top of the page.

    Could you please produce texts of Euripides’ Electra and Lysias Speech 12 (Against Eratosthenes) at your earliest convenience? Here in Australia, we are studying these books for our final exam in 2019 and would be really grateful to have your helpful editions.

      I have an incomplete draft of Lysias 12 with everything but grammatical notes that I have posted online today as a preview under the heading LYSIAS. I wrote it in 2013 to complement Lysias 1 but never finished it. The notes must be added, and vocabulary entries must be revised, so I suspect it will not suffice as it is. I resume teaching next week and do not have the time to add notes.

      Unfortunately,I will also not be able to offer Electra in time. I have too many commitments at the moment. My apologies. If there is any way that I can modify the Lysias 12 draft to make it more useful in the short term, please let me know.

    • geoffreysteadman says:

      Some commentaries require more nuanced understanding than I currently have (I have not read the Timaeus since graduate school in the late 90s). And so, if these do appear in the series , they will likely be part of a collaboration with a different primary author. Thank you for the suggestions. I will add them to the list.
