Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Sophocles I contains the plays Ajax, translated by John Moore; The Women of Trachis, translated by Michael Jameson; Electra, translated by David Grene; Philoctetes, translated by David Grene; and The Trackers, translated by Mark Griffith.

In this highly anticipated third edition, Mark Griffith and Glenn W.
