Excerpt from Sophocles, the Plays and Fragments, Vol. 5: With Critical Notes, Commentary, and Translation in English Prose, the Trachiniae
i. It has been the fortune of the Trachiniae to provoke a singular diversity of judgments. Dissen and Bergk refer the play to a period when the powers of Sophocles were not yet fully matured1. Bernhardy regards it as a mediocre production of declining age. Schlegel, in his Lectures on Dramatic Literature, goes further still; he pronounces the piece unworthy of its reputed author, and wishes that the responsibility for it could be transferred from Sophocles to some feebler contemporary, - his son, for instance, the 'frigid' Iophon'. Yet there has never been a lack of more favourable estimates.
