Appetitive: New Standard Translations

I had a really bad day, which capped off a really bad week, which capped off a really bad couple of months. But, tonight, I'm going to a lecture by Mark Griffiths and Glen Most on the new standard Greek Tragedy series which will replace the old Greene and Lattimore set. I'm really excited by the prospect of hearing what they have to say. I had the good fortune of getting to preview some of the material and it looks good (although I have a few quibbles with parts of the Persians). I will read more and add some commentary after the lecture. Needless to say, I think the new crop of students reading Greek Tragedy for the first time will have a great resource.
