ANTIGONE & PLAYS (OXFORD WORLD S CLASSICS)

ISBN: 9780199537174
This volume contains three masterpieces by the Greek playwright Sophocles, widely regarded since antiquity as the greatest of all the tragic poets. The vivid translations, which combine elegance and modernity, are remarkable for their lucidity and accuracy, and are equally suitable for reading for pleasure, study, or theatrical performance. The selection of Antigone, Oedipus the King, and Electra not only offers the reader the most influential and famous of Sophocles' works, it also presents in one volume the two plays dominated by a female heroic figure, and the experience of the two great dynasties featured in Greek tragedy--the houses of Oedipus and Agamemnon. 'Kitto's vigorous, accurate versions, made with production in mind, remain the best. Hall's lucid, informative, concise introduction with leads to further reading enhance the value of the volume considerably. I shall use it in classes.'--William M. Calderist, University of Illinois 'Wonderfully brief, clear introductory notes.'--Sr. Miriam Catherine Nevins, Dominican College 'Kitto's translations have aged will and Hall's introduction is excellent.'--James R. Baron, The College of William and Mary 'The sort of inexpensive, practical edition we need.'--J.C. Hogan, Allegheny College 'The price is right and next time I teach tragedy I would definitely consider using it.'--Victor Estevez, University of Missouri 'A wonderful translation!'--Elizabeth Kiss, Princeton University
