Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( )

22 editions published between 1973 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the translation of the Euripides play about the princess Iphigeneia who narrowly avoided death by sacrifice at the hands of her father, Agamemnon. She was saved by the goddess Artemis, to whom the sacrifice was to be made, and swept off to Tauris. As a priestess at the goddess' temple, she has the gruesome task of ritually sacrificing foreigners who land on King Thoas's shores. It has much in common with another of the Greek playwright's work, Helen, as well as the lost play Andromeda, and is often described as a romance, a melodrama, a tragi-comedy or an escape play
The odes of Pindar by Pindar( Book )

37 editions published between 1926 and 1976 in English and German and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these odes of victory we are transported in a "blaze of whirling song" to the Greece of the heroes and of the sacred games. As Pindar celebrated the particular victory, invoked the protective deity and told the myths from heroic legend, he expressed the human spirit's loneliness, joy, bitterness and sorrow. The great poet's bold phrasing, deep knowledge of human nature and awareness that "man is of a day" ring strangely modern

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

Story patterns in Greek tragedy by Richmond Lattimore( Book )

32 editions published between 1964 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Aristotle said that tragedy is an imitation of action, he meant that apart from other purposes and interests tragedy always acts out a story. With this definition in mind, the author examines the most important story patterns found in Greek tragedy. He asks: What are the most important story patterns found in Greek drama? What stories were available for the use of poets like Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides? What did tradition require, permit or forbid them to use? Bringing in many related elements of Greek tragedy, the author defines each of the story patterns suitable to the genre -- tracing the roots to the folklore and myths of ancient Greece."--Back cover
