4.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid textbook, 21 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sophocles: Antigone (Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama) (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophocles: Antigone (Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama), 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sophocles: Antigone (Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama) (Paperback)
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.
