George Perreault, Gonzaga University An exceptionally compelling translation that captures the feel of the original. The introduction and the end material add several useful dimensions. Highly recommended!
J.P. Sullivan, University of California, Santa Barbara Braun's translation is as steely as the Greek and his introduction cuts through to the heart of the play.
Praise for the series:
Kliatt Young Adult Paperback Guide While every reader may have a favorite translation that does this or that differently, these are finely modulated to seem neither foolishly colloquial nor irritatingly archaic. The great delight of this series, for me, are the first-rate brief introductions, the practical and wise notes, the enormously useful classical glossary. This series is likely to be a standard for years to come.
Brad Wright, Cornell University The transaltion is very readable....Notes are very helpful.
Patricia P. Watsen, University of South Carolina The translation, introduction, notes, appendix, and glossary should attract the intelligent reader. The translation itself is accurate and of high quality.
