Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Synopsis:

The author of more than 70 plays, Aeschylus is the earliest of the great Attic tragedians. Of these plays, only seven remain. The "Oresteia" is his only complete surviving trilogy. Peter Meineck has aimed to translate this version of the "Oresteia" for the modern stage.

About the Author
