By Mark on September 23, 2010
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.
