Iphigenia at Aulis
Book Description In danger of losing his command, Agamemnon considers sacrificing his daughter to the gods. How far will he go to save face and secure victory in the East?

His translation of Iphigenia was produced to great acclaim in summer 2004 at the National Theatre. He died in 2003.
