For readers accustomed to the relatively undramatic standard translations of Prometheus Bound, this version by James Scully, a poet and winner of the Lamont Poetry Prize, and C. John Herington, one of the world's foremost Aeschylean scholars, will come as a revelation. Scully and Herington accentuate the play's true power, drama, and relevance to modern times. Aeschylus originally wrote Prometheus Bound as part of a tragic trilogy, and this translation is unique in including the extant fragments of the companion plays.

Industry Reviews

"I love the introduction, translation, and notes. Very well informed and stimulating."--John Lenz, Drew University "The notes and introduction are excellent and the translation itself is clear and effective."--E. Christian Kopff, University of Colorado "A fine translation."--Betty Nye Quinn, Mount Holyoke College "Glossary and appendix very helpful. I like the remarks on staging in the introduction."--Patricia P. Matsen, University of South Carolina "It would be hard to fault this extremely forceful translation, cogent introduction and helpful notes - I look forward to tackling other works in this series."--Jan Gorais, University of Denver
