A Swallow Press Book
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.
