 About the Book 

Professor Sir Hugh Lloyd-Jones was a British classical scholar and Regius Professor of Greek (Oxford) at Oxford University.He pursued undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Christ Church, Oxford. He supervised many distinguished PhD students, not least Martin Litchfield West. In his inaugural address as Regius Professor in 1961 he called for a reduction in the emphasis laid on composition taught to undergraduates and suggested that Honour Moderations might have to be reformed to encompass studies taken from ancient philosophy and history as well as the traditional literature and language.He contributed editions of Menander’s Dyscolus (1960) and Sophocles (1990, together with Nigel Wilson) to the Oxford Classical Texts, and editions and translations of the Aeschylean fragments (1960) and Sophocles (2000) to the Loeb Classical Library.He was married to Mary R. Lefkowitz, Professor Emerita of Classical Studies at Wellesley College in Massachusetts.
