    $3.99
    More Info
    The critically acclaimed Fitts and Fitzgerald translation of Sophocles' Oedipus Cycle that chronicles the tragic downfall of the royal family of Thebes.



    The ancient myth of Oedipus, which still reverberates to this day, provided Sophocles with material for three great tragedies--Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone--that together recount the downfall of Oedipus, king of Thebes, his death in exile, and the heroic, defiant stand made by his daughter Antigone.

    Written for a modern audience, these English translations of Sophocles' trilogy aim to capture the directness, simplicity, and concentrated richness of Sophocles' plays in clear, credible English verse that is both readable and actable.

    More Info
    Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can properly re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order
    to evoke the poetry of the originals.

    Collected here for the first time in the series are four major works by Euripides all set in Athens: Hippoltos, translated by Robert Bagg, a dramatic interpretation of the tragedy of Phaidra; Suppliant Women, translated by Rosanna Warren and Steven Scully, a powerful examination of the human
    psyche; Ion, translated by W. S. Di Piero and Peter Burian, a complex enactment of the changing relations between the human and divine orders; and The Children of Herakles, translated by Henry Taylor and Robert A. Brooks, a descriptive tale of the descendants of Herakles and their journey home.
    These four tragedies were originally avialble as single volumes. This volume retains the informative introductions and explanatory notes of the original editions and adds a single combines glossary and Greek line numbers.

    The Oresteia (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    Aeschylus' Oresteia, the only ancient tragic trilogy to survive, is one of the great foundational texts of Western culture. It begins with Agamemnon, which describes Agamemnon's return from the Trojan War and his murder at the hands of his wife Clytemnestra, continues with her murder by their son Orestes in Libation Bearers, and concludes with Orestes' acquittal at a court founded by Athena in Eumenides. The trilogy thus traces the evolution of justice in human society from blood vengeance to the rule of law, Aeschylus' contribution to a Greek legend steeped in murder, adultery, human sacrifice, cannibalism, and endless intrigue. This new translation is faithful to the strangeness of the original Greek and to its enduring human truth, expressed in language remarkable for poetic intensity, rich metaphorical texture, and a verbal density that modulates at times into powerful simplicity. The translation's precise but complicated rhythms honor the music of the Greek, bringing into unforgettable English the Aeschylean vision of a world fraught with spiritual and political tensions.

    The Scorekeeper; A Play

    $14.99
    More Info
    In one aspect, "The Scorekeeper" is a terrific story about the resonance of baseball, of which the author and I agree is "the greatest of all games." But it is about so much more, including fate, faith, family and the courage to dream again. Most importantly, Scott Russell loves his characters, and you will come to love them... well, not the assholes... as well. Score it an "A" in my book. -- Matthew J. Goldberg, author, humorist and incurable baseball fanMatthew J. Goldberg is the author of "Hot Ice Cream: Inspiring Life Lessons from Our Children" and "Wordapodia: An encyclopedia of Real Fake Words."I found the character ""Tim Barrett" to be particularly appealing. Scott Russell has written a wonderful and imaginative book.--Bill "Spaceman" Lee, pitcher, author and former gubernatorial candidate.
