In the third edition of The Complete Greek Tragedies, Mark Griffith and Glen W. Most have carefully updated the translations to bring them even closer to the ancient Greek while retaining the vibrancy for which the Grene and Lattimore versions are famous. New introductions for each play offer essential information about its first production, plot, and reception in antiquity and beyond. Each volume also includes an introduction to the life and work of its tragedian and an explanation of how the plays were first staged, as well as notes addressing textual uncertainties and a glossary of names and places mentioned in the plays. The result is a set of handsome paperbacks destined to introduce new generations of readers to these foundational works of Western drama, art, and life.
This is a used copy in very good condition.
