Book Description

Vivid, poetic language, the dramatic power and intensity, the subtleties of meaning, and the explosive emotions of Sophocles' great triology are captured in the Paul Roche translation. Here is an eloquent story of a noble family moving toward catastrophe, dragged down by pride from wealth and power, cursed with incest. suicide, and murder.
