Re my translation of the Oresteia of Aeschylus. I tried mightily to find an Aeschylean form of idiomatic English so that the translation would sound to us the way the Greek sounded to his audience. I have been roundly criticized for succeeding. University Press of America,1993.

Pharaoh thanks God he is God
with the power to make animals into men
for the end-species requires labor
does not breed but is flogged into being
to look up and imagine numerology and law
across to imagine citizenship
and to forget that law is woman
and the crucial ibis is his brother
As Pharaoh halts at the ferry of souls
