Praise for David Grene and Richmond Lattimore's Complete Greek Tragedies

"This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody."--Kenneth Rexroth, Nation

"The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary. . . . They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase."--Times Education Supplement
