Overview

The Penn Greek Drama Series presents original literary translations of the entire corpus of classical Greek drama: tragedies, comedies, and satyr plays. It is the only contemporary series of all the surviving work of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, and Menander.

Praise for the series:

"A boon for classicists and general readers alike. For the reader who comes to tragedy for the first time, these translations are eminently 'accessible.'. . . For the classicist, these versions constitute an ambitious reinterpretation of traditional masterpieces."
--The Boston Book Review

"A two-year project to publish the corpus of classical Greek drama in translations by an impressive array of contemporary poets. It may not be long before anyone who mentions that he is reading Sophocles in Greek can expect to be told, "Oh but you simply must read it in translation."
--The New Yorker

If you're looking for Richmond Lattimore's translation, this is not it. I found this book listed under a search for Richmond Lattimore, one of the 20th century's great translators of Greek poetry and drama. This edition popped up because the "overview" and "editorial review" state that Lattimore's translation is excellent. The problem is that this particular edition is from the 19th century, and it is NOT Lattimore's translation. I've noticed that BN's information is unreliable, and this is not the only time the overview did not give correct information about the particular edition to which it was attached.
