    From the introduction by Joyce Carol Oates: Between them, our great visionary poets of the American nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, have come to represent the extreme, idiosyncratic poles of the American psyche. . . . Dickinson never shied away from the great subjects of human suffering, loss, death, even madness, but her perspective was intensely private; like Rainer Maria Rilke and Gerard Manley Hopkins, she is the great poet of inwardness, of the indefinable region of the soul in which we are, in a sense, all alone.

    One of the most admired and widely read of living poets produces the most vigorous and supple 20th-century version of this classic, at once a delight to the Latinist and an appealing introduction to Ovid for the general reader. These stories of transformations - through love, death or radical physical change undergone by great figures of mythology, among them Hercules, Narcissus, Prosperina, Midas, Bacchus, Venus and Adonis - suit the powerfully clear and emphatic unrhymed verse of Britain's reigning poet laureate. This beautifully designed and produced edition includes the poet's brief Introduction. Notes, index. 320p.

    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.
