Publisher Description

This updated translation of the Oresteia trilogy and fragments of the satyr play Proteus includes an extensive historical and critical introduction.

In the third edition of The Complete Greek Tragedies, Mark Griffith and Glenn W. Most have carefully updated the translations to bring them even closer to the ancient Greek while retaining their vibrancy for which the Grene and Lattimore versions are famous. New introductions for each play offer essential information about its first production, plot, and reception in antiquity and beyond.

Each volume also includes an introduction to the life and work of the tragedian and an explanation of how the plays were first staged, as well as notes addressing textual uncertainties and a glossary of names and places mentioned in the plays. The result is a series of lively and authoritative translations offering a comprehensive introduction to these foundational works of Western drama.
