Aeschylus: Oresteia

Translated by Christopher Collard

  • The translation reproduces the dignity of Aeschylus's verse rather than adopting a more 'poetic' or informal approach: it is deliberately faithful to the original both in meaning and tone.
  • The introduction offers an appreciation of the Oresteia and provides concise information about Aeschylus's dramatic poetry in his own time and in ours.
  • Uses the most authoritative critical edition of the Greek text.
  • Detailed explanatory notes explain mythical, historical, and cultural phenomena, and trace the complex linking of ideas and language which holds the Oresteia together.
