Description
"George Dillon has elected for speed and clarity; his speed, of which short quotations can impart no notion, is his equivalent for Racine's impetuous dexterity with the French Alexandrine. . . . Momentum, in such a version, is everything. It stands as a homage to Racine's strength of construction . . . and to the expressive power of his themes, on which Mr. Dillon's prefaces have eloquent and sensible things to say."--Hugh Kenner, "National Review
"
"His literal and flexible blank verse actually forms the nearest thing in English to the longer-measured rhymed couplets of Racine; even an ordinary reading aloud of so faithful a rendering provides something of the experience that Proust described."--Elliott Coleman, "Poetry"
"A superb introduction . . . flawless translations, infused with poetic fire and charm."--Margaret Carpenter, "Norfolk Virginian-Pilot"
