Christopher Collard

Liverpool University Press

An able and versatile scholar, denied a Cambridge career before the University Test Acts of the 1860's and 1870's, because of his conversion to Catholicism in the 1840's. For nearly fifty years he lived as a private tutor and by his pen, an ‘outsider’ like Badham (see 19) above), publishing on a wide rage of topics, architecture, religion, the sciences and above all Classics, where he was prolific with over fifty commentated editions, including English ‘firsts’ with Propertius and Hesiod, and now uncountable pamphlets, articles and reviews. He edited four plays of Sophocles, but all those of both Aeschylus and Euripides, collectively and individually. His Euripides still stands alone as the only complete commentary by an individual, and has lasted best, his textual notes, like those on Aeschylus, remarkably gaining greater prominence in recent years.

Keywords:   Paley, disadvantaged Catholic, prolific commentator, Aeschylus, Euripides
