Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )
18 editions published between 1973 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,714 libraries worldwide
The modern reader may have difficulty conceiving of Iphigeneia in Tauris as tragedy, for the term in our sense is associated with downfall, death, and disaster. But to the ancient Greeks, the use of heroic legend, the tragic diction and meters, and the tragic actors would have defined it as pure tragedy, the happy ending notwithstanding. While not one of his ""deep"" dramatic works, the play is Euripidean in many respects, above all in its recurrent theme of escape, symbolized in the rescue of Iphigeneia by Artemis, to whom she was about to be sacrificed. Richmond Lattimore--who has been calle
Aeschylus by Aeschylus( Book )
21 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in English and held by 1,627 libraries worldwide
An extraordinary drama of flight and rescue arising from women's resistance to marriage, The Suppliants is surprising both for its exotic color and for its forceful enactment of the primal struggle between male and female, lust and terror, brutality and cunning. In his translation of this ancient Greek drama, Peter Burian introduces a new generation of readers to a powerful work of Aeschylus' later years. He conveys the strength and daring of Aeschylus' language in the idiom of our own time, while respecting what is essentially classical in this dramatist's art: the rigor of the formal cons

The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )
12 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 952 libraries worldwide
Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play

"The Acts of the Apostles, which Richmond Lattimore calls "the earliest consecutive story of early Christianity that we have," and the three groups of Letters of the Apostles - those of Saint Paul, the letters to the Hebrews, and the General Letters - are now made available to complete the New Testament in his translation. His aim has been to provide a simple, literal rendering in which the syntax and order of the Greek dictate the character of the English style."--Jacket
