However, I will say that if you have an income and are more interested in the context of the plays (always a plus), I would recommend going with the Penguin Classics edition. If you are presently hammered by the economy and want to break up the time spent looking for worthwhile employment with material you should have read in school, then the Dover Thrift Edition will do.
Sophocles was an immensely talented writer, but the older (presumably free use) translations that Dover uses deprives the reader of the common, everyday language that was used...Sophocles was not using antiquated language for his audiences, and it is best to not think of it that way.
