Additional info for A Companion to Sophocles

Example text

There is a biography of Sophocles in some manuscripts of his plays and another in the Byzantine encyclopedia Suda. In addition, anecdotes about him appear in various ancient authors. However, the biographical traditions about Greek poets, as recorded both in the surviving short formal biographies and in the anecdotes told by extant authors, tend to be almost useless as historical sources, although they are very valuable testimonies for how ancient readers thought about the authors. They are heavily based on inferences from the poetry itself and on jokes from comedy, neither of them used with critical sophistication, and many of the incidents they narrate are obviously folktales.
