Quite. Still good for vocabulary, though any Greek prose you compose may have more poetic vocabulary than Aristotle would approve of. Even with the poetic freedoms, though, the basics (agreement, aspect/tense, much morphology) will be the same.
How about those drama scripts as by Aeschilos or other authors? Are they recommendable for learning normal conversational grammar and vocabulary?
Probably the dialogues of Plato and Lucian would be the best. The Attic of drama is still quite poetic.
Just a snippet:
As discussed on the classics list today, apparently one correct response to [face=spionic]xai=re[/face] is [face=spionic]kai\ su/[/face]. In the right context, it might also be considered rude, I gather.
