|May 17, 2018||Posted by Christina Lafi under CHS US Programs & Events|
This month’s Book Club selection is the Ajax of Sophocles. The discussion will start in the Kosmos Society forum, and the Google+ Hangout will be at 11 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 29; the link will be posted in the forum at that time.
As always, you can read this tragedy in any translation you like. Here are links to some free online versions:
- Translated by Sir Richard Jebb, at Perseus (his commentary is also available)
- Translated by Ian Johnston (with the option to download)
- Translated by George Theodoridis, at Poetry in Translation
For those who wish to look at the Greek, the text is available at Perseus; and
Jebb’s edition with the Greek on one side and his translation on the other, with notes at the bottom of the page, is available at archive.org to view online or to download.
