The Trojan Women and Hippolytus
Euripides
0486424626
July 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Played out against the ruined walls of Troy, The Trojan Women—one of the most powerful indictments of war ever written—grimly recounts the murder of the innocent, the desecration of shrines, and the enslavement of Trojan women. Hippolytus, the second drama, depicts the struggles to master human passion, struggles symbolized by gods who behave like irresponsible humans. These two classics of human self-examination are essential reading for anyone interested in world drama.

"These authoritative translations consign all other complete collections to the wastebasket."--Robert Brustein, The New Republic

"This is it. No qualifications. Go out and buy it everybody."--Kenneth Rexroth, The Nation

"The translations deliberately avoid the highly wrought and affectedly poetic; their idiom is contemporary....They have life and speed and suppleness of phrase."--Times Education Supplement

"These translations belong to our time. A keen poetic sensibility repeatedly quickens them; and without this inner fire the most academically flawless rendering is dead."--Warren D. Anderson, American Oxonian

Euripides: Medea and Other Plays
James Morwood (Translator)
0192824422
November 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood. He is also remarkable for the prominence he gave to female characters, whether
heroines of virtue or vice. This new translation does full justice to Euripides's range of tone and gift of narrative. A lucid introduction provides substantial analysis of each play, complete with vital explanations of the traditions and background to Euripides's world.
Contains: Medea; Hippolytus; Electra; Helen

The Complete Greek Tragedies, Volume 3 : Euripides (Complete Greek Tragedies)

Book Description
The Grene and Lattimore edition of the Greek tragedies has been among the most widely acclaimed and successful publications of the University of Chicago Press. On the occasion of the Centennial of the University of Chicago and its Press, we take pleasure in reissuing this complete work in a handsome four-volume slipcased edition as well as in redesigned versions of the familiar paperbacks.

For the Centennial Edition two of the original translations have been replaced. In the original publication David Grene translated only one of the three Theban plays, Oedipus the King. Now he has added his own translations of the remaining two, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone, thus bringing a new unity of tone and style to this group. Grene has also revised his earlier translation of Prometheus...

Heracles and Other Plays
Euripides
0140447253
Aug 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The dramas Euripides wrote toward the end of his life are remarkable for their stylistic innovation and adventurous plots. Heracles stands apart in its stark portrayal of human suffering and the deceptive power of the gods. In contrast, the satyr play Cyclops celebrates drink, sex, and self-indulgent hedonism. In the plays in this collection, which also includes Iphigenia Among the Taurians, Ion, and Helen, Euripides exploits the comic potential to be found in traditional myth. While weaving plots full of startling shifts of tone, deception, and illusion as well as comedy, Euripides always reminds us how quickly fortunes can be reversed and invites his audience to view the world with skepticism and compassion.

Book Description
The first playwright of democracy, Euripides wrote with enduring insight and biting satire about social and political problems of Athenian life.  In contrast to his contemporaries, he brought an exciting--and, to the Greeks, a stunning--realism to the "pure and noble form" of tragedy.  For the first time in history, heroes and heroines on the stage were not idealized:  as Sophocles himself said, Euripides shows people not as they ought to be, but as they actually are.
