The Complete Greek Tragedies Aeschylus by Aeschylus

These authoritative translations consign all other complete collections to the wastebasket. --Robert Brustein, The New Republic This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody. --Kenneth Rexroth, The Nation The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary....They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase. -- Times Education Supplement These translations belong to our time. A keen poetic sensibility repeatedly quickens them; and without this inner fire the most academically flawless rendering is dead. --Warren D. Anderson, American Oxonian The critical commentaries and the versions themselves...are fresh, unpretentious, above all, functional. -- Commonweal Grene is one of the great translators. --Conor Cruise O'Brien, London Sunday Times Richmond Lattimore is that rara avis in our age, the classical scholar who is at the same time an accomplished poet. --Dudley Fitts, New York Times Book Review

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.
