9781472526793: The Oresteia: Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides (Bloomsbury Revelations)

First performed in 458BC, Aeschylus's trilogy of plays - known collectively as The Oresteia - remains perhaps the great masterpiece of Ancient tragic drama. Telling the bloody story of the House of Atreus, Aeschylus's tragedy stages an eternal debate about justice and revenge that remains relevant more than two millenia later.

Now available in the Bloomsbury Revelations series in this classic and authoritative translation by Hugh Lloyd-Jones, this book contains the text of all three plays - Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides - with extensive scholarly annotation throughout.

"Hugh Lloyd-Jones's translation stands out very much from any other. The notes are first class and scholarly."—Jeffrey Rusten, Cornell University

From the Back Cover:

"By far the best translation. Faithful to the original Greek text and eminently readable. The notes constitute a commentary in their own right." (Albert Henrichs, Harvard University)
