Most widely held works by Gustav Georg Wolff
Aias = Ajax by Sophocles( Book )
23 editions published between 1867 and 1913 in Greek, Ancient and German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brought boldly to life by Herbert Golder and Richard Pevear's translation and contextualized by Herbert Golder's eloquent introduction, this early Sophoclean tragedy tells the story of the Homeric hero better known as Ajax, who was second only to Achilles among the Greek warriors. In Greek tradition, Aias figures as the archaic warrior who dies in shame after his betrayal by the Greeks. Sophocles turns tradition inside out, portraying Aias' suicide not as a disgrace but as heroism. He endows Aias' suicide with a meaning radically different from previous versions of the Aias myth - Aias is not the hero whom time has passed by, but rather the man who steps beyond time. Most previous versions and interpretations have equivocated over Sophocles' bold vision. This edition of Aias translates precisely that transformation of the hero from the bygone figure to the man who transcends time."--Jacket
Antigone by Sophocles( Book )
21 editions published between 1873 and 1913 in 4 languages and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Echoing through western culture for more than two millennia, Sophocles' play has been a touchstone of thinking about human conflict and human tragedy, the role of the divine in human life, and the degree to which men and women are the creators of their own destiny. This exciting new translation of the Antigone is both extremely faithful to the Greek and poetically striking and convincing

Elektra : a play by Sophocles( Book )
8 editions published between 1863 and 1893 in Greek, Ancient and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A dynamic and necessary new translation of Sophocles' chilling tragedy of hatred, revenge, and murder</ Orestes, the son of King Agamemnon, returns to his homeland to take revenge on his mother, Klytemnestra, and her lover, aegisthus, for killing his father in cold blood. Elektra has long awaited her brother's return, bitter and contemptuous of their mother's moral justification for slaughtering Agamemnon, who had sacrificed the life of another daughter, Iphigenia, so the Greek army could sail to Troy. Elektra helps Orestes and his friend Pylades execute an ingenious plan, continuing a bloody cycle that destroys the lives of their enemies and will forever haunt their own. </ Robert Bagg's new translation, modern in idiom while faithful to the original, conveys the complex range of emotion experienced by grieving family members who expect vengeance to set them free. This is Sophocles for a new generation. </
