Praise

“Conveys more vividly and powerfully than any of the ten competitors I have consulted the eternal power of this masterpiece … a triumph.” —Bernard Levin 

“How satisfying to read at last a modern translation which is rooted in Greek feeling and Greek thought … both the stature and the profound instinctive genius of Aeschylus are recognised.” —Mary Renault, author of The King Must Die
