A Book to Buy
on December 20, 2010
This is a modern translation, not at all slangy. The introduction and essays at the end are useful.
Medea and Hyppolytus are popular plays. The Bacchae is totally disturbing and is meant to be. Heracles Mad is not so well known, not so popular, and probaly his best extant play.
A good read, with much meat for thought.
