About the Author

Aeschylus (born at Eleusis, near Athens, c. 525 BC; died at gela, Sicily, 456 BC) was the dramatist who first made Athenian tragedy one of the world's great art forms, though in his epitaph he preferred that he should be remembered as one of those who fought the Persians at Marathon. Although he is said to have written over eighty plays, only seven have survived.

Alan H. Sommerstein has been Professor of Greek at the University of Nottingham since 1988. He has written or edited more than thirty books on Ancient Greek language and literature, especially tragic and comic drama, including Aeschylean Tragedy (1996), Greek Drama and Dramatists (2002), and a complete edition of the comedies of Aristophanes with translation and commentary (1980-2003).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sure it's translated - and I was not expecting that - Amazon should warn a person who is a student of the Ancient Languages - where someone has already done the translation and whether the book is correctly bilingual or not - if you want it bilingual go for the Alan Sommerstein version and MAKE SURE - of what you are getting
