3 Aeschylus; Mark Griffith (Ed. ) AESCHYLUS: PROMETHEUS BOUND
Cambridge University Press 1983 0521270111 / 9780521270113 Softcover Very Good 
Spine a bit sunned. Light shelfwear. Pages lightly tanned. ; Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics; 328 pages; The myth of fire stolen from the gods appears in many pre-industrial societies. In Greek culture Prometheus the fire-stealer figures prominently in the poems of Hesiod, but in Prometheus Bound Hesiod's morality tale has been transformed into a drama of tragic tone and proportions. In the introduction, Mark Griffith examines how the dramatist has achieved this transformation, looking at the play from all angles - plot and characters, dramatic technique, style and metre. He includes a short section on the production of the play and on the questions of authenticity and date. The commentary guides the reader through problems of language, metre and content. An important feature of this volume is the appendix, which gathers together the existing fragments of the other two plays in the supposed Prometheus trilogy, quoting them in full in the original language and in translation, with short accompanying commentary. This is suitable for undergraduates and students in the upper forms of schools. It also deserves the serious attention of scholars. The introduction requires no knowledge of Greek and will interest students of drama and literature in other cultures too.

5 Antiphon, Andocides; Michael Gagarin & Douglas MacDowell (translated by) ANTIPHON & ANDOCIDES
Austin, Texas, U.S.A. University of Texas Press 1998 0292728093 / 9780292728097 Softcover Very Good+ 
Spine slightly sunned. ; Xxvii, 174pp. This volume contains the works of the two earliest surviving orators, Antiphon and Andocides. Antiphon (ca. 480-411) was a leading Athenian intellectual and creator of the profession of logography ("speech writing") , whose special interest was law and justice. His six surviving works all concern homicide cases. Andocides (ca. 440-390) was involved in two religious scandals—the mutilation of the Herms (busts of Hermes) and the revelation of the Eleusinian Mysteries—on the eve of the fateful Athenian expedition to Sicily in 415. His speeches are a defense against charges relating to those events. ; Oratory of Classical Greece Volume 1; 174 pages
