  4. E. Kerr Borthwick (1992). Observations on the Opening Scene of Aristophanes' Wasps. Classical Quarterly 42 (01):274-.
    The lack of stage directions in surviving Greek comedy which might give a clue to comic ‘business’ not clearly signalled or confirmed in the text is a considerable disadvantage to us, not least in some of the opening tableaux of Aristophanes. One thinks of restless father and snoring son in bed at the opening of Clouds, the jokes involving the incongruous entry of master, slave, donkey and baggage in Frogs, the preparations for launching the dung-beetle into space in Peace – (...)

  5. E. Kerr Borthwick (1991). Bee Imagery in Plutarch. Classical Quarterly 41 (02):560-.
    There can be few Greek prose authors who outdo Plutarch in fondness for elaborate similes, and a determination to sustain at length vocabulary appropriate to both objects of comparison within the simile, once it is embarked upon.

  7. E. Kerr Borthwick (1991). 'The Wise Man and the Bow' in Aristides Quintilianus. Classical Quarterly 41 (01):275-.
    In the second book of the De Musica, Aristides Quintilianus discourses at length on the educational value of music, drawing on many earlier sources, Pythagorean, Damonian, and of course Plato and Aristotle. In ch. 6 Plato's censorious views in the Republic are particularly referred to, but, like Aristotle in the eighth book of his Politics, Aristides takes a less severe attitude towards the pleasure-giving content of melody on appropriate occasions, and points to the natural human taste for such music: τς (...)
