Read full description of the books:



The Penn Greek Drama Series presents original literary translations of the entire corpus of classical Greek drama: tragedies, comedies & satyr plays. It's the only contemporary series of all the surviving work of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes & Menander.
"A boon for classicists & general readers alike. For the reader who comes to tragedy for the 1st time, these translations are eminently accessible...For the classicist, these versions constitute an ambitious reinterpretation of traditional masterpieces."--Boston Book Review
"A speakable version of Sophocles' Philoctetes: as it were, after 25 years, a sequel to Pound's The Women of Trachis."--Hugh Kenner, NYT Book Review
"A two-year project to publish the corpus of classical Greek drama in translations by an impressive array of contemporary poets. It may not be long before anyone who mentions that he is reading Sophocles in Greek can expect to be told, 'Oh, but you simply must read it in translation'."--New Yorker
"Don't look for the wild & woolly--these were put together by wordsmiths...But they are a far cry from some of the stodgier translations."--Washington Post
"The 12-volume set will offer readers new verse translations of the complete surviving tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles & Euripides, as well as the surviving comedies of Aristophanes & Menander. The complete line of Greek theater classics has not been offered to readers since 1938."--Publishers Weekly
