Description: Heinrich von Kleist's Penthesilea, virtually unknown in the English-speaking world, is one of the strangest and most beautiful works of Western literature, comparable in scope and grandeur to the great tragedies of Sophocles and Shakespeare. Yet in this passionate retelling of the legend of Achilles' encounter with the Queen of the Amazons, Kleist anticipated the gender conflicts and culture wars of our time.

When presenting Joel Agee with the 1999 Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator's Prize for outstanding translation from German to English, the jury stated:

Joel Agee has succeeded in rendering in dynamic blank verse Kleist's tragic story of love in a world governed by the rules of war. The translation is both gripping to read and masterfully rendered for the stage. Joel Agee has created a linguistic masterpiece and presented a new Kleist to the English-speaking world.
