Thesetranslations paved the way for the supple and radiant versions of Ovid's Metamorphoses and Euripdes' Alcestis. Now, Weissbort compiles a vital addition to the Hughes oeuvre. 320p.

This beautifully designed and produced edition includes the poet's brief Introduction. Notes, index. 320p.

  • The Oresteia of Aeschylus: A New Translation

    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9780374527051
    • Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
    • Published: September 2000
    Aeschylus' trilogy, THE ORESTEIA - Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides - depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by his wife, Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Ted Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a greast performance, recasting the Greek original in light of one of the themes of Hughes's own poetry, that of the survivor's guilt and remorse and need to grasp at significance after a death in the family. 198p.
