Aeschylus I: Oresteia: Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers, The Eumenides (The Complete Greek Tragedies #1)

by Aeschylus David Grene Richmond Lattimore

"These authoritative translations consign all other complete collections to the wastebasket."--Robert Brustein, The New Republic. "This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody."--Kenneth Rexroth, The Nation. "The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary.... They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase."--Times Education Supplement. "These translations belong to our time. A keen poetic sensibility repeatedly quickens them; and without this inner fire the most academically flawless rendering is dead."--Warren D. Anderson, American Oxonian. "The critical commentaries and the versions themselves... are fresh, unpretentious, above all, functional."--Commonwealth. "Grene is one of the great translators."--Conor Cruise O'Brien, London Sunday Times. "Richmond Lattimore is that rara avis in our age, the classical scholar who is at the same time an accomplished poet."--Dudley Fitts, New York Times Book Review.

The Iliad of Homer

by Homer Richmond Lattimore

The finest translation of Homer ever made into the English language. --William Arrowsmith. "Certainly the best modern verse translation." --Gilbert Highet. "This magnificent translation of Homer's epic poem... will appeal to admirers of Homer and the classics, and the multitude who always wanted to read the great Iliad but never got around to doing so." --The American Book Collector. "Perhaps closer to Homer in every way than any other version made in English." --Peter Green, The New Republic. "The feat is decisive that it is reasonable to foresee a century or so in which nobody will try again to put the Iliad in English verse." --Robert Fitzgerald. "Each new generation is bound to produce new translations. [Lattimore] has done better with nobility, as well as with accuracy, than any other modern verse translator. In our age we do not often find a fine scholar who is also a genuine poet and who takes the greatest pains over the work of translation." --Hugh Lloyd-Jones, New York Review of Books. "Over the long haul Lattimore's translation is more powerful because its effects are more subtle." --Booklist. "Richmond Lattimore is a fine translator of poetry because he has a poetic voice of his own, authentic and unmistakable and yet capable of remarkable range of modulation. His translations make the English reader aware of the poetry." --Moses Hadas, The New York Times.
