Critical acclaim for Barry B. Powell:"Powell's style is individual and self-assured, and his lines cry out to be read aloud.
Barry Powell's clever translation is simple and energetic: sometimes coarse, sometimes flowing, it is always poetically engaged.
Powell's muscular verses are faithful to the original Greek but bring the characters to life. This is a page-turner, bound to become the new standard translation.
