Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can best re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals. The tragedies collected here were originally available as single volumes. This new collection retains the informative introductions and explanatory notes of the original editions, with Greek line numbers and a single combined glossary added for easy reference. This volume collects Euripides' Andromache, a play that challenges the concept of tragic character and transforms expectations of tragic structure; Hecuba, a powerful story of the unjustifiable sacrifice of Hecuba's daughter and the consequent destruction of Hecuba's character; Trojan Women, a particularly intense account of human suffering and uncertainty; and Rhesos, the story of a futile quest for knowledge.

We discuss THE TROJAN WOMEN in the play several times, so I decided I needed to reread it. I read the beginning of several translations, and this one is by far the best. It captures, as best as a translation can, the sense of poetry. It also has a useable table of contents which is very important when using a Kindle.

The Rollers of Vildar
The one star refers only to the difficulty of reading the endnotes in the Kindle edition. The play is one of the greatest Greek tragedies and the translation is excellent. There are extensive and useful notes. However since there is no link between between the text and the notes--as in other Kindle editions-- the reader has to guess where to go. This is cumbersome and takes up too much time. The paper copy is much easier--if you like to read the annotations.

Great literary translations of the various plays with an excellent introduction-synopsis before each play .
