A Cry of Kings: Six Greek Dramas in Modern English

edited and translated by Frederick Williams of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale

Translations originally made for the stage, where they have all been tried, and consequently revised: Sophocles' Electra, Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone; and Euripides' Women of Troy and Alcestis.  The language is straightforward and fresh, and accessible for newcomers to the Greek clasics.  Each play is accompained by an introduction, and there is a pronouncing glossary of Greek names that occur in the plays.  Ideal for courses in mythology, drama, and Greek literature in translation.
