This paper, written to mark the bicentenary of Markland's death, assesses the life and achievement of a remarkable scholar, ‘the only (English) one except Bentley who has been highly and equally eminent in Greek and Latin’ (A.E. Housman). Markland was a Fellow of Peterhouse Cambridge from 1718; although absent for long periods as a private tutor in a wealthy family, he produced the edition of Statius’ Silvae which made his name throughout Europe. From 1744 he lived in rural seclusion and near poverty, but from 1763 published the first important annotated individual editions of Euripides’ Suppliants and two Iphigenia-plays; he turned more and more to Greek studies and contributed widely to other men's learned editions.
