    1. actually I am reading the University of Chicago translation but I already have the volume marked as read due to The Bacchae What a bizarre take on the Electra story There are elements of what is to come in the Aeschylus telling, but the action in this Electra is very earth bound and intensely mundane The murders of Aegisthus and Clytemnestra are not couched in the epic diction of the other tragedians Electra s situation is homespun and not tragic like in Sophocles or even Hoffmannsthal.The bizar [...]


    2. I enjoyed the book All the plays are short reads without too many characters It s good to see that Greek mythology has contradictions and inconsistencies The best example of this would be Odysseus, who is depicted as noble, clever, valorous and brave in the Odyssey yet cruel in The Trojan Women play Even within the collection, characters such as Orestes have some differences in what they do or say.


    3. If you have thought Shakespeare is a must read for everyone, than I think you would agree that these Three Playwrights must also be read I am surprised how relevant I found them to be Euripides was especially a surprise for me Known as a misogynist, I found him to be the first feminist writer His woman are round, powerful, and often evil But importantly he delineates the female plight in his culture I loved much of his work.


    4. Agamemnon Aeschylus translated by Richard Latti four starsOedipus the King Sophocles translated by David Grene five starsAntigone Sophocles translated by Elizabeth Wyckoff four starsHippolytus Euripides translated by David Grene five stars


    5. Finished The Libation Bearers , on to the Eumenides.I don t think I ever want to reread The Trojan women again It s just really very upsetting.


    6. Took me a bit too get through them, even in translation it was difficult to understand at point Probably because there were really characters and the chorus had most of the lines


    7. five playsAeschylus The Libation BearersSophocles ElectraEuripides Iphigenia in TaurisEuripides ElectraEuripides The Trojan Women



    8. I m sticking with the on line Ian Johnston translation of the Oreistia, in this case The Libation Bearers It was short and quick direct Definitely a middle to a story.
