- Dover Thrift Editions : FIVE GREAT GREEK TRAGEDIES
DetailsFive of the greatest Greek tragedies, each in an outstanding translation, include"Oedipus Rex" and "Electra" by Sophocles (translated by George Young);"Medea" and "Bacchae "by Euripides (translated by Henry Hart Milman); and"Prometheus Bound" by Aeschylus (translated by George Thomson),a monumental work that examines relations between humans and the gods.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: "He was not of an age, but for all time," declared Ben Jonson of his contemporary William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Jonson's praise is especially prescient, since at the turn of the 17th century Shakespeare was but one of many popular London playwrights and none of his dramas were printed in his lifetime. The reason so many of his works survive is because two of his actor friends, with the assistance of Jonson, assembled and published the First Folio edition of 1623.
