I think I'll decline to give a star rating to this one. It's not my opinion that matters--here is a classic of drama that if somehow you got through high school and college without reading, you should go back and check that box. I did get this assigned in high school literature class and re-read it the other day. Even to a western reader 2500 odd years later, it holds substantial power, as well as gave a name to a major psychological...uh...complex. And you can read it a couple of hours, so just get it done already.

Penni I did not read it in high school. Bring it over and I'll gulp it down!
