Sophocles by Sophocles( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophocles with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm - but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. -- Jacket
The libation bearers by Aeschylus( Book )

20 editions published between 1970 and 1982 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unfortunate result of the eagerness of modern commentators to lay stress on Aeschylus as a thinker and religious poet has been the frequent neglect to observe The Libation Bearers, like Agamemnon, is full of suspense, action, and skillfully contrived surprise
The Eumenides by Aeschylus( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 1979 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sommerstein presents a freshly constituted text, with introduction and commentary, of Eumenides, the climactic play of the only surviving complete Greek tragic trilogy, the Oresteia of Aeschylus. Of all Athenian tragic dramas, Eumenides is most consciously designed to be relevant to the situation of the Athenian state at the time of its performance (458 B.C.) and seems to have contained daring innovations both in technique and in ideas. The introduction and commentary to this edition seek to bring out how Aeschylus shaped to his purpose the legends he inherited, and ended the tragic story of Agamemnon's family in a celebration of Athenian civic unity and justice. The commentary also pays attention to the linguistic, metrical and textual problems to be encountered by the reader

Aeschylus by Aeschylus( Book )

31 editions published between 1926 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty years ago, the University of Chicago Press undertook a momentous project: a new translation of the Greek tragedies that would be the ultimate resource for teachers, students, and readers. They succeeded. Under the expert management of eminent classicists David Grene and Richmond Lattimore, those translations combined accuracy, poetic immediacy, and clarity of presentation to render the surviving masterpieces of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides in an English so lively and compelling that they remain the standard translations. Today, Chicago is taking pains to ensure that our Greek tragedies remain the leading English-language versions throughout the twenty-first century

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

29 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most famous series of ancient Greek plays, and the only surviving trilogy, is the "Oresteia of Aeschylus", consisting of the "Agamemnon", "Choephoroe" ('Libation Bearers') and "Eumenides" ('Kindly Ones'). These three plays recount the murder of Agamemnon by his queen Clytemnestra on his return from Troy with the captive Trojan princess Cassandra; the murder in turn of Clytemnestra by their son Orestes; and Orestes' subsequent pursuit by the Avenging Furies (Eumenides) and eventual absolution. There has been no shortage of translations and adaptations of the "Oresteia", but such are the poetic complexities of Aeschylus' language and the remoteness of the world he depicts that they mostly fall far short of either the literal meaning or the spirit of the original. This translation by an eminent scholar stays as close to the text as English idiom will allow and is perfectly adapted to the student's needs. Notes elucidate the difficulties, and introductions to each play set the trilogy against the background of Greek religion as a whole and Greek tragedy in particular, presenting a true assessment of Aeschylus' dramatic art."--Bloomsbury Publishing
