"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

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.
