The birds by Aristophanes( )

22 editions published between 1953 and 2000 in English and held by 2,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pez and Eck are on the hunt for the perfect society in "a city where free men might live like birds". But when they start building the bird city for real, Pez starts to have ambitions - which seem not a million miles away from dictatorship. As the fantasy utopia threatens to turn into a tyranny the birds start to rebel. Sean O'Brien's new verse brings Aristophanes' devastatingly ironic comment on human ambition bang up-to-date and is brimful of jokes ancient and modern."--BOOK JACKET

Sappho by Sappho( Book )

2 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These hundred poems and fragments constitute virtually all of Sappho that survives and effectively bring to life the woman whom the Greeks consider to be their greatest lyric poet. Mary Barnard's translations are lean, incisive, direct -- the best ever published. She has rendered the beloved poet's verses, long the bane of translators, more authentically than anyone else in English. -- From publisher's description

The Oedipus cycle by Sophocles( Book )

16 editions published between 1949 and 2002 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These English versions of Sophocles' trilogy were composed specifically for a modern audience by two gifted poets and Hellenists. Their aim was to recapture the directness and simplicity as well as the concentrated richness of the poetry of Sophcles; they wished at the same time to make their verse renderings of the plays "clear and credible in English" and actable as well as readable. The critical acclaim with which these versions have been received both in the United States and in Great Britain indicates that Mr. Fitts and Mr. Fitzgerald have achieved their aim
