From the back cover:
Revising and updating his classic 1958 translation, Paul Roche, in vivid poetic language, captures the dramatic power and intensity, the subtleties of meaning, and the explosive emotions of Sophocles' great Theban trilogy. Here, for the modern reader, is the eloquent story of a noble family moving toward catastrophe, dragged down by pride from wealth and power, cursed with incest, suicide, and murder.
