Synopsis: One of the most talented disciples of the illustrious comparative philologist Richard Porson, Peter Paul Dobree (1782-1825) is commemorated in this two-volume edition of Adversaria, consisting of his prolific notes on Greek and Latin literature, history, and philology. Dobree left an enduring impression upon English classical scholarship, despite his premature death shortly after accepting the Regius professorship of Greek at Cambridge. Edited by his successor at Cambridge, James Scholefield, the Adversaria attest to Dobree's scholarly probity and precision, offering insights into a mind whose major achievements undoubtedly still lay ahead. Volume 2 (1833) includes Dobree's notes on Greek literature - including the works of Sophocles, Aeschylus, Euripides, and Aristophanes - as well as his comments on such major Latin writers as Cicero, Livy, Horace, and Juvenal. Dobree was honoured among 'the first rank of English textual scholars' for his accuracy, rigour, and literary sensitivity - qualities demonstrated in these volumes.
