  • "Winner of the American Translators Association 2000 Lewis Galantire Award. Peter Meineck is Producing Artistic Director of The Aquila Theatre Company, Visiting Scholar at the Center for Ancient Studies, New York University and teaches Greek Drama at the Tisch School for the Arts."@en
  • "Trilogie van de Griekse tragedieschrijver (525-456 v. Chr.)."
  • "Ted Hughes' translation of The Oresteia is written in his most pared-down and powerfully-drive verse, at once equal to Aeschylus's tragic vision and speaking directly to modern audiences and readers."
  • "Agamemnon -- The libation-bearers -- The furies."@en
  • "A trilogy of plays dramatizes the murder of Agamemnon by his wife, Clytemnestra, the revenge of her son, Orestes, and his judgement by the court of Athena."
  • "John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Eisenhower Theater, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and The Smithsonian Institution present The American College Theatre Festival produced by American Theatre Association sponsored by Amoco Oil Company and American Airlines with the cooperation of The Alliance for Arts Education. The University of North Carolina, Greensboro, Greensboro, North Carolina, UNC-G Theatre presents "The Oresteia," of Aeschylus, translated by Richmond Lattimore, directed and edited by Herman Middleton, scenic designer Andreas Nomikos, lighting designer David R. Batcheller, costume designer Sigrid Insull, composer of original music Roy Prendergast, director of movement James S. Reynolds, assistant director, vocal coach Mary Kelly, stage manager Lewellyn Betts, technical director A. Lynn Lockrow, assistant to lighting designer Eric Olson."
  • "Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority. --Farrar Straus and Giroux."@en
  • ""The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Book jacket."
  • "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 series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals."
  • "Trilogie over de vloek die sedert generaties op het huis van de Atriden drukt."
  • "This the only trilogy to survive from Greek tragedy, and the religious and moral ideas it enacts afterwards influenced a great dramatic genre, as well as giving its three plays their lasting significance. In this family history, Fate and the gods decree that each generation will repeat the crimes and endure the suffering of their forebears. When Agamemnon is murdered by his wife, Clytemnestra, their son Orestes must avenge his father's death. Only Orestes' appeal to the goddess Athena saves him from his mother's Furies, breaking the bloody chain; together gods and humans inaugurate a way of just conduct that will ensure stable families and a strong community. The Oresteia is majestic as theatre and as literature, and this translation seeks to preserve both these qualities. The introduction and notes emphasize the interconnection of scenes, ideas, and language that distinguishes this unique work."
  • "The Oresteia by Aeschylus, the only extant trilogy among the Greek tragedies, is one of the great foundational texts of Western culture. Beginning with Agamemnon, which describes Agamemnon's return from the Trojan War and his murder at the hands of his wife, Clytemnestra, and continuing through Orestes' murder of Clytemnestra in Libation Bearers and his acquittal at Athena's court in Eumenides, the trilogy traces the evolution of justice in human society from blood vengeance to the rule of law. The story of the house of Atreus is a tale of incest, adultery, human sacrifice, cannibalism, and political intrigue. It is also a story in which human action is simultaneously willed and determined."
  • "Presents a modern translation of the ancient Greek trilogy which traces the chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos, commissioned by the Royal National Theatre for performance in the Fall of 1999."@en
  • ""Presents a complete modern translation of the ancient Greek trilogy which traces the chain of murder and revenge withon the royal family of Argos, and includes an abridged stage adaptation of the tragedies.""
