The essence of Aeschylus's famous trilogy in a single play that speaks forcefully to today's audiences. In lean, lyrical poetry, Rob Hardy's adaptation highlights all the glory of the original: epic tales of lust, war, family strife, and revenge; choruses that echo the liturgical and hymnic infl uences behind Greek drama; Aeschylus's pride in Athenian law, philosophy, and oratory. In his Oresteia Aeschylus gave Athens reason to believe that institutionalized justice, not revenge, tames the savagery of human beings. His message resonates in our time, and Hardy's accessible adaptation is a steadfast modern guide to this ancient wisdom. With a foreword, an introduction, notes, and figures. Called "masterful" by Thomas Van Nortwick, professor of classics (emeritus), Oberlin College. Rob Hardy is a Minnesota poet and classicist who has published poems and essays in a wide range of publications.
