2 editions published between 1888 and 1990 in German and English and held by 15 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.>

Z díla velkého řeckého dramatika přináší svazek sedm dochovaných tragédií (Antigoné, Élektrá, Král Oidipús, Oidipús na Kolónu, Filoktétés, Tráchíňanky, Aiás), velkou část satyrského dramatu Slídiči a výběr zlomků. Ve všech tragédiích nastavuje neuměřenému sebevědomí skromnější dimenze lidských možností, usiluje o rozumné poznání zdravé míry a ve všech se uplatňuje jeho humanismus, pramenící ze soucitu nad údělem člověka i z obdivu nad jeho velikostí
