This edition of the Oresteia of Aeschylus is a tool for readers who have a working knowledge of ancient Greek to read Aeschylus in ancient Greek for pleasure and for literary appreciation while gaining an intuitive grasp of grammar and vocabulary. The presentation consists of an edition of the ancient Greek text with parallel extended English glossing of the Greek text. In a traditional interlinear text, glossing is placed between the lines. Since that layout doesn't work well for ancient Greek, I place my glossing alongside-para in ancient Greek-hence my invented term "paralinear" to describe this text. Each glossing presents the meaning of the text in English word order, with the words of the Greek text interspersed. The reader can see easily which words in the Greek mean what, and how the structure of the Greek works. A reader who takes full advantage of this layout can follow the Greek relatively easily while learning the very large Aeschylean vocabulary naturally, in context.
