Choruses from the Lost Plays of Sophocles
Taking the general subject of most of the 110 lost plays of Sophocles from their titles, renowned poet & translator David Slavitt improvises 'translations' of various choruses to produce this quirky little book.
David R. Slavitt, educated at Andover, Yale, and Columbia, is the author of more than a hundred books—novels, poetry, reportage, and translations. He was the movie reviewer for Newsweek in the sixties, and was co-editor of the Johns Hopkins Complete Roman Drama as well as the Penn Complete Greek Drama. Among his recent publications: THE SONNETS AND SHORT POEMS OF FRANCESCO PETRARCH (2012, Harvard University Press), CIVIL WARS (2013, Louisiana State University Press), THE FOUR OTHER PLAYS OF SOPHOCLES (2013 Harvard University Press), and THE CROONING WIND: THREE GREENLANDIC POETS (New American Press 2013).
