Synopsis: Excerpt from The Oresteia of Aeschylus: Translated and Explained
The deficiency has been made good recently, in the Homeric sphere, by Dr. Leaf's 'com panion to the Iliad, ' Mr. Andrew Lang's new version of the Homeric Hymns, and my volume, 'the Greek Epic, ' in the series entitled The Dawn of European Literature.' The present series is designed to further the study of the highly characteristic and complex phases of Greek life and thought embodied in the Attic drama, a province of no less im portance than that of the Epic poetry, and demanding even fuller elucidation, permeated as it is by a spirit unfamiliar to modern ideas, and presupposing a mass of tradition, with out which much of its human interest is lost. The plan adopted is to furnish in a running commentary what is required to ex plain each play in detail, and in one or more introductory essays to set forth the more general aspects of the subject-matter and the poet's environment.
