5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb, if a bit dogmatic. 4 avril 2003
Par Timothy Doran - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
[Note: This edition is a text in ANCIENT GREEK with notes in English. It has no text in English if you are looking for one. There are many to recommend. The best translation of the Oresteia, of which this work is the first part, is in Tony Harrison's Collected Works; the worst, in my opinion at least, was written by Ted Hughes. All the rest are good.]
This is a superb edition with one caveat. At the moment, educated consensus generally holds that a line of poetry seldom has one meaning. Denniston and Page's text plus commentary of Agamemnon apparently was written before this consensus formed. Denniston and Page are feisty, dogmatic, and insistent that they are right, and are largely reacting to Fraenkel's massive text plus commentary to the same play. They take issue with Fraenkel on a number of points while acknowledging his immense erudition. I have no reservations, however, recommending this edition. It was very useful and well-thought out. I give it a high rating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still the standard commentary on the Agamemnon 3 mai 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Since its publication in 1950 it's been the standard scholarly commentary on the Agamemnon, on of the greatest and most read Greek tragedies. Although it's not easy to handle, very elaborate and showing it's age a little,it's nevertheless a monument of modern classical scholarship.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for students 28 février 2014
Par Paul D. Carr - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
These books are great for students studying the Greek Tragedies in English for the first time. They are similar to No Fear Shakespeare books in that they have a page of info opposite every page of text. The info amounts to detailed notes, not translation. The translation itself seems to be aimed more at clarity than clarity and style. Of course, the Chicago Press/Lattimore and Grene translations are far better written and truer to poetic meter, but these translations are a bit easier to understand for the first time reader. Unfortunately, the series does not seem to have all of the extant Greek plays. Agamemnon seems to be the only one from the Orestia, or Aeschylus for that matter. There are several titles available from Euripides and Sophocles, however. I would highly recommend them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The standard of Clasccial Literary Criticsim 24 mai 2001
Par Patrick Walsh - Publié sur
Literary criticism, especially Classical, may someday get better than this, but it has not happened yet. This work and the accompanying volumes provide us with a model of literary criticism without equal.
Oh, let's not forget the play iteslf. This is Aeschylus' finest surviving work, and is excelled only by Sophocles Theban trilogy. The translation, should you need it, is first rate. I especially love the opening scene describing the network of lights across the Aegean announcing the fall of Tray, and setting into motion the mechanisms of destruction for the house of Atreides.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deniston Page could not be better 11 décembre 2006
Par James M. Rawley - Publié sur
It would be good to have two years of college Greek behind you before starting on Denniston and Page's AGAMEMNON, a Greek text with modern commentary. As a single-volume edition for students, this one could not be bettered: everything is explained and difficult passages are translated in the notes -- about three lines a page are difficult enough to require this treatment. And I mean difficult for everyone, the world's greatest Greek scholars included. The difficulties are very thoroughly discussed. Another reviewer here has said Denniston and Page are dogmatic; not at all: they point out where passages are unclear, disagreed about by scholars, or outright lost. Most of the choruses contain passages so distorted scholars have to guess at what was written, and (assuming their guess is right) exactly what the passages mean. Aeschylus writes a little like Shakespeare in MACBETH: very poetically and not always clearly. In spite of all this, passages, sometimes quite long, of powerful poetry leap out of the page. The play has been compared to KING LEAR and called, along with LEAR, one of the two best tragedies of all time. What's more, it makes you feel, even with Denniston and Page's constant help, that you can really understand Greek if you can understand lines from this play.
