Which translation of Oresteia?

Recommended Posts

I can't remember which translation we read. Whichever it was, my sons liked it. I have a question, though. When you compare the two translations, is it the same as comparing the Fagles and Lattimore Iliads, one plainer and the other more poetic sounding? When we read The Iliad, we read a little of both. I would have liked to read the Lattimore one, but thought the Fagles one probably would suit my youngish boys better.
