Five of the greatest Greek tragedies, each in an outstanding translation, include Oedipus Rex and Electra by Sophocles (translated by George Young); Medea and Bacchae by Euripides (translated by Henry Hart Milman); and Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus (translated by George Thomson), a monumental work that examines relations between humans and the gods/5. Meineck and Woodruff's new annotated translations of Sophocles' Ajax, Women of Trachis, Electra, and Philoctetes combine the same standards of accuracy, concision, clarity, and powerful speech that have so often made their Theban Plays a source of epiphany in the classroom and of understanding in the theatre. Woodruff's Introduction offers a brisk and stimulating discussion of central themes. Sophocles has books on Goodreads with ratings. Sophocles’s most popular book is Oedipus Rex (The Theban Plays, #1). Faithful as translations and vigorous and straightforward both to read and to act, these versions were written, like their originals, for immediate staage-production. Kitto has deliberately used a fairly strict meter, allowing himself no greater number of verses than Sophocles used, and where the original is formal--as in the line-by-line dialogue--the translations too are formal.
