The woman who died to save her husband has proved to have a hold on the imagination almost as strong as the man who killed his father and married his mother. But, apart from D. J. Conacher's student text, no annotated edition in English has appeared for more than fifty years. The present work is designed to aid close reading and to serve as an introduction to the serious study of the play in its various aspects. The introduction covers the background to the story in myth and folktale, its treatment by other writers from antiquity to the present, the critical reception of Euripides' play, and its textual transmission and metres. The notes are designed in particular to help readers who have been learning Greek for a relatively short time. More advanced matter, such as discussion of textual problems, is placed in square brackets at the end of the note."--BOOK JACKET+-+808731103532417105ocn051113384file19980.35EuripidesWomen on the edge four playsDrama+-+K82254069516731ocn000244285book19680.30Wilson, John RichardTwentieth century interpretations of Euripides' Alcestis; a collection of critical essaysEssays to help you understand and appreciate Eupidipes' play, Alcestis11613ocn003169423book19770.29Wilder, ThorntonThe Alcestiad : or, A life in the sun : a play in three acts, with a satyr play, the drunken sistersDrama76011ocn403775550file19060.50EuripidesAlkestisDramaWhen Apollo was exiled for nine years from his Olympian home, he found shelter and hospitality at the palace of King Admetus. To pay him back, Apollo offers Admetus the chance to live beyond the day that fate has decided he will die. There is only one catch: when death comes to get him, Admetus must find a willing substitute. Having been rebuffed by his aging (but not ailing) father, Admetus finds a willing proxy in his wife, the eponymous Alkestis, who is brought to Death's door, indeed is led through it, only to be rescued by Admetus's old friend Herakles, who wrestles with Death, and wins+-+212336566872824ocn000378842book18530.70EuripidesThe Alcestis of EuripidesDramaStories, plots, etc+-+81482982257086ocn042049299book19990.26Hughes, TedEuripides' AlcestisDrama+-+35749692856319ocn027812606book19940.53EuripidesEuripidesDramaEuripides of Athens (ca. 485-406 BC), famous in every age for the pathos, terror, surprising plot twists, and intellectual probing of his dramatic creations wrote nearly ninety plays. Of these, eighteen (plus a play of unknown authorship mistakenly included with his works) have come down to us from antiquity. In this first volume of a new Loeb edition of Euripides David Kovacs gives us a freshly edited Greek text of three plays and an accurate and graceful translation with explanatory notes. Alcestis is the story of a woman who agrees--in order to save her husband's life--to die in his place. Medea is a tragedy of revenge in which Medea kills her own children, as well as their father's new wife to punish him for his desertion. The volume begins with Cyclops, a satyr play--the only complete example of this genre to survive. Each play is preceded by an introduction. In a general introduction Kovacs demonstrates that the biographical tradition about Euripides---parts of which view him as a subverter of morality, religion, and art--cannot be relied on. He argues that this tradition has often furnished the unacknowledged starting point for interpretation, and that the way is now clear for an unprejudiced consideration of the plays themselves.

Literary commentaries and language aids in most editions are too advanced or too elementary for intermediate students of the language, but in this new student edition, C. A. E. Luschnig and H. M. Roisman remedy such deficiencies." "The introductory section of this edition provides historical and literary perspective; the commentary explains points of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as elucidating background features such as dramatic conventions and mythology; and a discussion section introduces the controversies surrounding this most elusive drama. In their presentation, Luschnig and Roisman have initiated a new method for introducing students to current scholarship." "This edition also includes a glossary, an index, a bibliography, and grammatical reviews designed specifically for students of Greek language and culture in their second year of university study or third year of high school."--BOOK JACKET+-+89208615353458ocn035167955book18870.53EuripidesAlcestis and other playsDramaEuripides' tragedies proved highly controversial even in his own lifetime, presenting his audience with unexpected twists of plot and violently extreme emotions; for many of today's readers and spectators, he seems almost uncannily modern in his insights+-+08919959653152ocn001616826book19740.35EuripidesThree playsDrama+-+26859959653242903ocn051872420book20030.26EuripidesMedea, and other playsDramaProvides translations of four plays along with a general introduction and prefaces to each play+-+44749959652833ocn000649512book19530.47EuripidesThree playsDrama2754ocn318877182book20100.17Beutner, KatharineAlcestisHistoryFictionFantasy fictionIn this vivid reimagining of a classical Greek myth, the eponymous Greek heroine Alcetis, known as the good wife because she loved her husband so much that she died to save his life, tells about her childhood, her marriage to the young king of Pherae, and what happened during the three days she spent in the underworld before being rescued by Heracles.
