Thank you for the suggestions. I will consider each one seriously.
Thank you so much for the commentaries! I’d pretty much stopped doing Greek until I came across them. Currently slowly but happily slogging through book 1 of Thucydides with help from Cameron’s commentary, Lexicon Thucydidaeum, and (especially) the Perseus website. Reading Bacchae in translation years ago was one of the things that made me decide to try teaching myself Greek, so that would also be great. As would Sappho and pseudo-Anacreon; memorizing poems is helpful for vocabulary, and of course it’s wonderful stuff. Re: Iliad 1 and Daphnis & Chloe, note that commentaries in essentially the same style as yours already exist, by Draper and by Byrne & Cueva.
Thank you for making these commentaries! Please know that they are very much appreciated. I wish more PhD's were making similar contributions to the field. One day, when I master enough Greek, I hope to do the same.
I too would like The Persians having recently seen the live streamed production from Epidauros.

Another UK-U3A Reading Group here. This time in the North of England UK. I'm the voter who suggested Apollonius Rhodius-Argonautika. I'm currently working on Book 4 for Dickinson College Commentaries. I'd be very interested in producing a commentary on the rest of the Argonautika but using your format (on the lines of Pharr's Aeneid?). I've started on Book 1. Would you be interested in publishing it on your website? Would you like to see a preliminary sample? You can see that U3A is very popular in UK. We in Sheffield have used some of your editions as well!
I'm looking forward to your edition of The Bacchae with great anticipation; it will be a tremendous help to our U3A Greek reading group.

I would also find the editions of Genesis and Mark in Greek helpful.
Our U3a Greek group have been waiting impatiently for your Bacchae . At present we are coping with Odyssey 13 & 14 without you and it certainly takes much longer in preparation time!

I wavered between Aristophanes' Frogs and Aeschylus' Persians as we have seen excellent productions of both (and Bacchae) in the last year and would love to get to grips with all of them.
