Meineck's translation is faithful and supple; the language employed is modern without betraying the grandeur and complexity--particularly the images--of the Aeschylean text. After reading this translation, one has but one further wish: to see it and hear it at Delphi, Epidaurus or Syracuse. --Herman Van Looy, L'Antiquite Classique

Ted Hughes's translation is magnificent . It is modern without compromising the narrative

I don't know if it's the translation or my lack of knowledge about the ancient Greeks, but I found these stories difficult to follow. The notes did a good job of helping me with the 1st 2 stories, but the 3rd one remained bewildering.
