About the Authors
  • Benjamin Hall Kennedy (1804–1889) was a celebrated Classicist who enjoyed great success as a lecturer and as an author; his Latin Primer is still in use today. In this book, originally published in 1882, Kennedy provides both the original text of Aeschylus' Agamemnon, the first play in the Oresteia trilogy and one of the most famous extant Greek tragedies, as well as a metrical English translation and a broad commentary on, among other topics, the themes of the play, its metrical construction and variations in the various manuscripts. This book will be of value to Classics students seeking a guide to this intricate and influential play.
