Format: Paperback
This was worth it for me for Prometheus Bound alone. Every so often I read
something that hits a nerve and opens up a new insight.
It has joined my list of unforgettable stories. (It's a short list, probably because my memory is not so great.)
I have never read any other translations but I can't see how it would be better.

The other three stories i found were fairly good reads. Too bad so many stories by Aeschylus were lost to history. I wonder what we are missing.

Format: Paperback
This volume carries many of the same virtues and pitfalls as the other Grene/Lattimore collections. For more information, please see my review of 'Aeschylus I.' To speak directly to this volume, I can guarantee that each play is produced in straightforward English. The entire collection is a pleasure to read.

I could not find this book for rent for my son's Greek Mythology class. Amazon had the best price for purchase and the book arrived as advertised.

I just wanted to point out that all these reviews refer to the wrong translation. This is NOT the Slavitt translation!
I haven't read this one but, having read Lattimore's translations of the Oresteia I would guess they were quite good.

Format: Paperback
Ancient Greece is a topic that once bored me, but after I read this book, I suddenly became interested in the Ancient World and the great many achievements of the Greeks. I know many people may not read books on Ancient topics, but this one is definately not one to pass by
