This texbook is absolute perfect for those wish to study a popular play, but who have no real knowledge of Greek or even of theatre.

It has an excellent translation that has no pretentions. Easily understood and capable therefore of being used in a school or university production. It has a page of dialogue, opposite which there is a page of narrative explaining character, even obscure or difficult text. It also fills in background details. Small chapters on the history of greek Theatre and pronunciation guides are very useful.

In view of the fact that the book is, in my opinion very cheap, everyone with even a passing interest in the subject ought to acquire this text. Simply indispensible.

It is very helpful and very clearly set out with the script on one page and information about the text on the page next to it. This makes it very easy to read and understand. I would recommend this to anyone.

Bought this book because I'm supposed to get stuck into some reading over the summer and this was one of the titles suggested. I am happy to say that it arrived promptly and in perfect condition! I'm thrilled with my copy, which was a very good price and looks immaculate.

This edition seems to be aimed at school children, for which it is very suitable. For an adult, I would have preferred more historical background to the setting.

More suited for A-Level than degree level but a requirement for the OU masters. Excellent notes and well set out.
