Product description

Review

'The editors have selected translators who know Greek but who are poets themselves. The result ... is excellent' Tony Butler, Irish Press

'An excellent translation which more than most succeeds in capturing the poetry and the intensity of the original and so presents a realistic rendering of a classic...the modern rader hoping to glimpse the nature of Greek tragedy will do no better than read this translation.' Library Review
