"These new dramatic releases provide us once again with that powerful and direct style of translation for which Professor Johnston has become known. Students reading these translations will have no doubt of the passion and issues raised by the plays."

Princeton Professor Emerita.Elaine Fantham

Thank you so much for you e-text translations of Euripides and Aristophanes.  I am home schooling my children in Lima, Peru where we cannot access English libraries.  My daughter who is in tenth grade is reading through the classic literature. The translations I found of Euripides' 'The Bacchae' and Aristophanes' 'Peace', 'Birds', and 'Frogs' were not very good.  I thank you so much for providing a much clearer translation in a format that we can access.

I read the text on Bacchae and I found it very useful.

I want my high school juniors to read Medea. It's the first semester for teaching Greek Drama at a new school. I've look through translations and I like yours best.

I found your translation of  Antigone on the internet and decided to produce it as my thesis project for my Masters of Arts in Theatre Production. . .  I preferred the readability of your translation as well as the fact that it did not try to make the language sound too modern (as Corrigan's often sounds). I wanted to perform the play that Sopholces wrote which led me away from adaptations and toward translations instead.

Thank you so much for the translation of "The Frogs" you have made available... I am going to see the play performed tonight at the ancient theatre in Argos and I'm sure I'll get a lot more out of it thanks to your efforts. I compared a few translations but yours seemed the most satisfying. The notes are very useful, too - I might have got the mythological references, and even some of the literary ones, but gay Athenians, ghost writers and crooked laundry keepers would have passed me by.

My wife and I will be seeing Aristophanes' Birds next week at Stratford, Ontario, and in preparation for the event, we've been looking for a version of the play to read.  We thank you for your eminently readable and entertaining comedy, in a language that would play very well on the stage these days.

What Others Have Said About This Translation

Please let me express my thanks for your excellent, most readable  translation of The Bacchae. I've been working on my own version and I found  your text invaluable

As part of the drama minor programme, I am producing The Bacchae, and I've decided to use your... translation. Having read your translation for my Greek Tragedy class, I found your version surprisingly accessible for a translation thatís so faithful to the Greek.
Fredericton, New Brunswick
