Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

The great trilogy of Greek tragedies about the end of the curse on the House of Atreus, comprising Agamemnon, Choephori (Libation-Bearers) and Eumenides (The Furies).

A fourth play, Proteus, originally formed part of a tetralogy, but has not survived.

The trilogy was first performed at the Dionysia festival in Athens in 458 BC, where it won first prize.

Translated and introduced by Marianne McDonald & J. Michael Walton.

Suppliants / AjaxAjax

Translated by James Kerr

Aeschylus/Sophocles
 
Two Greek masterpieces:

Suppliants
Aeschylus challenges us to witness the emotional cost of exile and, in doing so, helps us to understand a contemporary issue. In some of the most opulent and purely lovely choral odes ever written, he describes the fate of the daughters of Danaus as they beg for asylum in Argos. 

Ajax
Describes the madness and death of one of the great Greek heroes of the Trojan wars, having fallen foul of the Gods.

The Oresteia

Agamemnon/The Libation Bearers/The Eumenides

Aeschylus
 

This translation is the result of a close collaboration between theatre director and playwright, Andy Hinds (author of Acting Shakespeare's Language), and Classics scholar, Dr. Martine Cuypers (Trinity College Dublin). Whilst preserving a scholarly fidelity to the original Greek, the translation is written in a clear and energetic verse, designed to be as 'performable' in the theatre, as it is ‘readable’ in the home or study. It will be of equal interest and use, therefore, to teachers, students and academics, to actors and directors, and to the general reader.

Companion Volume
The Oresteia is released as a companion volume to Hinds’ translation of Iphigenia in Aulis. Iphigenia represents Euripides’ version of a key episode in the great saga, The Fall of the House of Atreus, while The Oresteia relates Aeschylus’ version of the continuation and conclusion of the saga.
