3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By R. Bethune on June 1, 2006
This book's primary virtue is that it makes a good Greek text available in compact form with a useable English translation side-by-side. That's very handy for students of the Greek. People who are more interested in experiencing the play in English should seek out a more recent translation, such as that of Lattimore. The Smyth translation is very scholarly and very 19th century; most modern readers find it accurate, but stilted.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David on May 14, 2006
As the inventor of tragedy, Aeschylus gives us a masterful example of classic Greek tragedy in the Oresteia. His famous trilogy is offered in the original Greek, side by side with Herbert Weir Smyth's inspiring English translation. With earthy metaphors and a storm of emotion, this volume cannot fail to excite.
