There seems to be a discrepancy between what Logos promises to be included in Perseus and what actually is included in my Library. I have checked my 'hidden resources', but no English translation of any Perseus resource shows up there. What's wrong, here?

I need the Knights (English) in particular.

I don't have the problem

Could you please post a shot where you filter by publisher:Perseus?

I concur!

Scroll down to see if you have Aristophanes' Frogs in English...

It seems that the Perseus collection in Logos only contains Aristophanes' Clouds in English, not the other ones. Maybe that was an oversight that should be corrected. However, Logos does contain a translation of Knights, within the EB Great Books of the Western World collection: https://ref.ly/logosres/gbww04?ref=Aristophanes.Aristoph.%2c+Kn.

Don't know - my Perseus collection (EDIT: which only contains the classics, not the American Civil War etc, so has ~1400 resources in total, not ~1750 like Beloved's above) has 480 English language resources, however, as shown above, unfortunately only one of the plays of Aristhophanes among them.

those are missing from everybody's library, I guess - seems to be an oversight when the bundle was created.

In the meantime I checked all English books/translations identified as such and thus 'promised' in the Perseus Classics Collection (and many of the Greek/Latin only resources, too) and found that Aristophanes seems to be the only author where there is such a large gap - in fact I found only two more issues: we are missing the English translation of Diodorus Sicilus' Library and we are missing the Letters of Aeschylus in Greek and English.

This is something that should be addressed by Faithlife - preferably by building those thirteen books and giving to everybody who owns the collection.

Sorry for the confusion. There is a mistake on the product page.

This collection is generated from Perseus data and unfortunately they don't carry the works of Aristophanes in English.

Hey Kyle,

What about Letters by Pliny the Younger? Seems I only have them in Latin.

That's correct. They're only available in Latin.

I'm not sure this is entirely correct - maybe there was an issue with the data source handed over from Perseus?

All 11 Greek works seem to be present in English as well

Thanks. And very interesting! I ran a search directly from Google and only got the Greek results: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/collection?collection=Perseus%3Acorpus%3Aperseus%2Cauthor%2CAristophanes

I'll take a look at the English and see whats up.
