Publisher Comments:

"A brilliant translation; the only one since Dryden which reads like English verse and conveys some of the majesty and pathos of the original."--Bernard M. W. Knox

"Mandelbaum has . . . given us a contemporary experience of the masterpiece, at last."--David Ignatow

"The book has a wonderful, detailed liveliness in every line."--Robert Fagles

"Comes closer to the impossible goal of perfection than any of the numerous efforts that have poured out of American and British presses since World War II."--William S. Anderson
