About this product
- DescriptionIs Sophocles the poet more important than Sophocles the moralist, Sophocles the student of character, or Sophocles the storyteller? In this acclaimed work, eminent classicist Richmond Lattimore examines the complex and varied ways in which Greek poetry contributes to Greek drama. While ackwledging the difficulty of separating poetry-especially in translation-from other aspects of language, Lattimore offers keen insight into plays by Aeschylus ( The Suppliant Maidens, The Persians, The Seven against Thebes, Prometheus Bound), Sophocles ( Ajax, Oedipus Tyrannus), and Euripides ( Medea, Helen, The Bacchae).
- Author BiographyRichmond Lattimore (1906-1984) was a professor of Greek at Bryn Mawr College and considered one of the twentieth century's leading translators of Greek classical literature. His many works of editing and translation include The Complete Greek Tragedies, The Odyssey of Homer, and Greek Lyrics.
