5.0 out of 5 stars Dependable translation and commentary, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sophocles: Oedipus Tyrannus (Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama) (Paperback)
As with the others in this series, the format is easily understandable. Context, the Greek theatre are quickly explained. The commentary on the facing page once again is written in a simple but effective style. The authors highlight problems and give food for thought allowing the student to discuss options between themselves of situations etc portrayed in the play.

The translation is modern and very much understood. Any odd expressions or words that require clarification are done so in a clear and direct style. This allows this translation to be used in actual performance.The line numbers do not match the originals, but each page informs the reader off those original line numberings, so it is easy to compare other translations with this one.

There is a handy if small bibliography. Well worth the money and, if you want to dip into Greek Tragedy, this and the others in the series are excellent starter guides.
