5.0 out of 5 stars
Caution: Contains Filth, 26 Aug. 2012
I bought this because Clouds was mentioned in Bettany Hughes' The Hemlock Cup. Not being that familiar with 2,400-year-old Greek plays, I didn't really know what to expect, but found them hugely entertaining. They're marvellously filthy too. I had to read them twice, the first time only referring to the notes when something made no sense at all to avoid breaking the flow, and then the second time looking at all of them to get a better understanding of the context. Cracking stuff.
