Shaping Ceremony
Monumental Steps and Greek Architecture
Mary B. Hollinshead

“Nothing like this currently exists in English. Hollinshead integrates staircases into ritual use and thereby creates a picture for the reader of Greek religious festivals and gatherings, with all of the pomp and circumstance that these entailed.”
—Barbara Barletta, University of Florida

Oedipus at Colonus
Sophocles
A verse translation by David Mulroy, with introduction and notes

“David Mulroy’s verse translation is metrical and clarifying, his lines passionate, dynamic, and efficient, moving swiftly toward their fated end. The play’s tragic personae are drawn so sharply they seem exposed, as to an X-ray. It is as if Mulroy has a cell phone that connects him directly to the classical world. This is a superb contribution to Ancient Greek studies.”
—Kelly Cherry, author of A Kind of Dream: Stories
