This chapter examines the challenges involved in editing the fragmentary Greek poet Stesichorus, looking at the methodological problems involved, and comparing a section of the author’s recent edition (Cambridge University Press, 2014) with that of the previous edition (Oxford University Press, 1991). It points out how editorial choices, including the order in which fragments are placed, often have major implications for the literary interpretation of a poet.
