15. August 1991 Complete Greek Tragedies
"These authoritative translations consign all other complete collections to the wastebasket."—Robert Brustein, The New Republic

"This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody."—Kenneth Rexroth, The Nation

"The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary. . . .They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase."—Times Education Supplement

"These translations belong to our time. A keen poetic sensibility repeatedly quickens them; and without this inner fire the most academically flawless rendering is dead."—Warren D. Anderson, American Oxonian

"The critical commentaries and the versions themselves. . . are fresh, unpretentious, above all, functional."—Commonweal

"Grene is one of the great translators."—Conor Cruise O'Brien, London Sunday Times

"Richmond Lattimore is that rara avis in our age, the classical scholar who is at the same time an accomplished poet."—Dudley Fitts, New York Times Book Review

5.0 von 5 Sternen Three classics of Greek drama. 12. Juni 1999
"Oedipus the King" (or, "Oedipus Rex") is probably Sophocles' most famous work, first performed about 429 B. C. It should be required reading for every college Freshman. As had been prophesied, Oedipus unknowingly kills his father, Laius, and marries his own mother, Jocasta. The play has great use of irony. Jocasta (or, Iocasta) recognizes the truth before Oedipus and tries to prevent him from finding out. The play has unsrpassed use of dramatic irony. It has had a great influence on later authors. "Antigone" (probably first performed about 442 B. C.) is another tragedy centered on the flaw of stubborn pride. It also presents the conflict between secular law and divine law. A stubborn King Creon of Thebes refuses to allow the equally stubborn Antigone to bury the body of her brother Polynices despite the entreaties of Creon's wife and son. Creon orders her death but she commits suicide, as does Creon's wife and son. The play has excellent characterizations. The well-constructed "Oedipus at Colonus" (405 B. C.) was first produced after the death of Sophocles. It shared first prize in Athens along with some other plays. It is apparently a reflection of a quarrel between Sophocles and his own sons. An aged Oedipus, nearing death, curses his sons and prophesies their own deaths.

5.0 von 5 Sternen not good 14. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I feel that the book could have been less elaborate. I say this because you are waisting your time by reading all the mumbo-jumbo within the actual basic context. A better, more understandable version is The Oedipus plays of Sophocles...a new translation by Paul Roche... By that one instead...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simlpy Excelent! 2. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The three thebian plays defenetly defines irony, love, tragedy and power. For all who wonder where the term absolute power absolutely corrupts, now you know. These plays are beautifly tragic, the description of emotion, the plot twists and the story as a whole wrenches ur heart and if you are like me, this book makes you cry, laugh, and do every thing in between. This book is a book for those that trully enjoy a book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Plays to Die For 2. April 1998
"Early on the Sunday morning of May 22, 1949, after copying out half of Sophocles' desolate poem 'The Chorus from Ajax' as a valediction ("'Woe, woe!' will be the cry . . ."), James Forrestal tied one end of his bathrobe sash to the radiator of the diet kitchen across the hall from his sixteenth-floor room, tied the other end around his neck, removed the screen from the window above the radiator and jumped."
This passage from Richard Rhodes' Dark Sun says less about Forrestal (U. S. Secretary of the Navy during the Second World War) than it does about Sophocles. It prompted me to read Sophocles' Ajax. I found Forrestal's valediction both powerful and terrifying:
". . . By painful stages came to his right mind.
And when he saw his dwelling full of Ruin,
He beat his head and bellowed. There he sat,
Wreckage himself among the wreck of corpses,
The sheep slaughtered; and in an anguished gripe
Of fist and fingernail he clutched his hair. . ."
This in turn prompted me to reread the three Oedipus plays. I remembered reading them in college. I thought that I knew the story, but to my surprise I had missed some of the best parts. Either I'm getting wiser or I'm reading a better translation. I don't recall feeling the excitement or seeing the incredible beauty of construction when I read these plays for the first time. Sophocles is much, much better than I remembered him.
Unlike Forrestal, I think that there is nothing better than a good Greek tragedy to cheer you up. David Green's superb translations reveal the Master's touch in readable, comprehensible, modern English.

4.0 von 5 Sternen King Oedipus 30. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I just read this story a couple of days ago and I thought it was very interesting because Oedipis was unawhere that hi had married his own mother and that the chinldren that he had are his sons at the same time his brothers, but the thing is the this story has a lot of Irony cuz he doesen't know that he had killed his own father, the ex-king, he thought that his father was another person and when he didcover that there was a prophecy sab about him that said that he wold kill his own father he left his home so the phrofecy would not be completed, but the thing is the in the past his real father had order to leave him in the side of the mountain so he(oedipus) would die, he was only three days old, he was given to a shepart, but the shepert did not had the curage to leave him to die so hi gave the baby to another person and that person gave it to the other king as a present, buy the time Oedipus found out that he had killed his own father he punisht himself so that he would change part of the prophecy. He made himself blind because he said that he didnot deserver to see those who he had never seen and that the dead was not a punish ment for him that it would be the easy way and he deserved to suffer for the rest of his life.
