Not solely the issue of the translator's gifts & scrupulous care, buttressed & brilliantly informed through his close collaboration w/ colleague Bernard Knox, this grand translation is also the issue of a larger yet intimate community of scholarship & dedication to classical literature & the humanities among whose luminaries are counted Robert Fitzgerald, Dudley Fitts & Francis Fergusson among so many others. * "Antigone", "Oedipus the King" & "Oedipus at Colonus", written by Sophocles near the end of the 5th century B.C., are the most famous single plays of Greek tragedy. In this natural sequel to his brilliant rendering of Aeschylus' "Oresteia", which was hailed as "the most exciting translation of this generation," Robert Fagles achieved in his translation of "The Three Theban Plays" a truly modern English version of the essential core of Greek tragedy. The Fagles translation of THE THREE THEBAN PLAYS superbly conveys Sophocles' lucidity & power, the cut & thrust of his dialogue, the searing edge of his irony, the surge & majesty of his choruses, & (above all) the sublime god-defying magnificence of Antigone & Oedipus, those heroic figures who suffer greatly & who, through their suffering, triumph greatly too. * "I have always been a strong admirer of Mr. Fagles & his work, but [The Three Theban Plays] are something special: severe, almost, totally free of self-consciousness & 'fanciness', very speakable indeed, wonderful for actors, metrically so sophisticated & seeming so simple, the whole a marvel of craftsmanship & intelligence." - Emily Vermeule, Harvard University.
