  • Jeffrey Scott Bernstein was born in Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Sheffield. The Oresteia of Aeschylus is his first published work.
    Praise for Jeffrey Scott Bernstein 'It's a huge challenge, to convey the ritualistic and formal qualities of these plays, whilst making them readable and accessible to a contemporary readership, and Jeffrey Scott Bernstein meets it admirably... he uses blank verse throughout, and it proves a flexible choice... Bernstein's excellent notes, helpfully placed after each individual play, assist with unfamiliar references and enhance the reader's understanding and enjoyment... In his acknowledgements, Bernstein mentions that the draft of this translation sat in the darkness of a drawer for nine years. One can only feel pleased that, in this thoughtfully-presented, lively new edition, it has finally come to light.'

    Jill Sharp, The High Window
