Suppliant Women, in Greek
This volume has an excellent translation of Electra. It is a wonderful tragedy by Euripides, and it should evoke the catharsis that Aristotle is always raving about in his works.
Suppliant Women and Electra are everything I wanted out of Aeschylus, while Heracles is a wonderful descent into madness. It makes me think of the ending to The Shining.
As a Latin Teacher for the last 33 years, I enjoy re-reading the Greek and Roman Classics periodically. I am always amazed by how relevant they are to the human condition in any age.
