Oresteia (Paperback)

Oresteia Cover Image
By Aeschylus, Peter Meineck (Translator), Helene P. Foley (Introduction by)
Special Order


Meineck's translation is faithful and supple; the language employed is modern without betraying the grandeur and complexity--particularly the images--of the Aeschylean text. After reading this translation, one has but one further wish: to see it and hear it at Delphi, Epidaurus or Syracuse. --Herman Van Looy, L'Antiquite Classique
