I have so far only read Oedipus the King and the introduction to the play by Bernard Knox. Fagles' translation is very readable and engaging. It strikes the right tone and is abolutely my go-to version of this fantastic play. Bernard Knox's introduction was also an incredibly illuminating essay on the play, filled with facts and insights about drama, 5th century BC Athens, and some of the deepest philosphical dilemmas facing humankind. I can't wait to read the other two plays and their introductions. First rate.
Everybody should read some Ancient Greek work, the foundation of our western literature!
