It is useless to read Greek in translation; translators can but offer us a vague equivalent; their language is necessarily full of echoes and associations.

I read this while I was reading Aeschylus' Agamemnon using the same Lexicon  Virginia Woolf used the LS intermediate which is ancient. Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse is in my short list of must read modern classics.

 

Postscript: I was also reading Helma Dik on word order.
