A Swallow Press Book

The Tenth Muse
Classical Drama In Translation

Edited by Charles Doria

“For a non-classicist who doubts the relevance of classical drama for the modern state, this collection may prove a revelation.”

Grace Irwin, Canadian Author and Bookman

Although classical drama has been translated before, this new collection is unique. The translations are modern in their poetry; the translations include poets as well as classicists; and the collection includes at least one example of every known type of ancient Greek and Latin drama. Plays included are The Danaids and Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus; Philoctetes by Sophocles; The Bacchai and Cyclops by Euripides; Peace by Aristophanes; The Rope by Plautus; Thyestes by Seneca.

Cover of 'Terminal Diagrams'

Terminal Diagrams
Poems
By Garrick Davis

Garrick Davis’s Terminal Diagrams may have been inspired by the illustrated maps in airport lounges, or perhaps they are the blueprints of the Apocalypse, with their subjects and objects representing the bitter fruits of either some future nightmare or the present world. Regardless, their vision is so bleak and unsparing, only a few will be able to savor them. Here, the art of poetry has been mechanized just as the world has been mechanized.

Cover of 'The Indigenization of Pali Meters in Thai Poetry'

The Indigenization of Pali Meters in Thai Poetry
By Thomas Hudak

During the Ayutthaya period in Thailand (1350-1767), a group of meters based upon specific types and arrangements of syllables became a significant part of the Thai literary corpus. Known as chan in Thai literature, these meters, and the stanzas created from them, were adapted and transformed so that they corresponded in structure to other Thai verse forms.
