Most widely held works by Michael Ayrton
Virgil by R. D Williams( Book )

16 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A broad literary evaluation of the poet's major achievements, based on a selective consideration of recent critical studies, is presented in this booklet. An approach is developed in the analysis of the "Eclogues" as poems, the "Georgics", and the "Aeneid" which considers the underlying significance, moral values, and "tensions" between behavior and human environment in terms of recurrent imagery and symbolism, thematic connection, and continuity or opposition of tone.

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1979 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Oresteia Aeschylus addressed the bloody chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos. As they move from darkness to light, from rage to self-governance, from primitive ritual to civilized institution, their spirit of struggle and regeneration becomes an everlasting song of celebration. In Agamemnon, a king's decision to sacrifice his daughter and turn the tide of war inflicts lasting damage on his family, culminating in a terrible act of retribution; The Libation Bearers deals with the aftermath of Clytemnestra's regicide, as her son Orestes sets out to avenge his father's death; and in The Eumenides, Orestes is tormented by supernatural powers that can never be appeased. Forming an elegant and subtle discourse on the emergence of Athenian democracy out of a period of chaos and destruction, The Oresteia is a compelling tragedy of the tensions between our obligations to our families and the laws that bind us together as a society. - Amazon
Medea by Euripides( Book )

10 editions published between 1953 and 1985 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood. He is also remarkable for the prominence he gave to female characters, whether heroines of virtue or vice. -- Amazon.com
