The Oedipus cycle : an English version by Sophocles( Book )

40 editions published between 1939 and 2002 in English and held by 1,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ancient myth of Oedipus, which still reverberates to this day, provided Sophocles with material for three great tragedies -- Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone -- that together recount the downfall of Oedipus, king of Thebes, his death in exile, and the action carried out after his death by his daughter Antigone"--Page 4 of cover

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

The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

3 editions published between 1955 and 1957 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play
