The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket

Annotation
Phaedra Britannica by Tony Harrison( Book )

11 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his adaptation of Racine, Harrison ingeniously transposes the action of the old Greek tragedy of Phaedra to the steamy landscape of an India seen through the narrow eye slits of Victorian society. The story seen through this arresting perspective with the ancient and vengeful Gods of India taking over from the Greek furies takes on a special vibrancy. 'Phaedra Britannica' was first performed by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic in September 1975

Square rounds by Tony Harrison( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 'theatre piece' rather than a play, 'Square Rounds' is a meditation on armaments pioneers in the Great War. Written in verse and played by a large cast of women (some of whom have to get in drag to play the male boffins), the piece is a theatrical exploration of the double-edged nature of 'scientific progress'. 'Square Rounds' premiered at the Olivier Theatre, National Theatre, London, in October 1992
V. by Tony Harrison( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V. es la inicial de la preposición inglesa "versus", "contra". Pero también "v" es la inicial de "versos". Un juego de palabras que comienza por el título y continúa en el poema. Un poema que es un descenso a uno de los círculos del infierno de la sociedad contemporánea actual: el círculo de la alienación, el paro, la violencia, donde tan fácilmente surgen esos "hooligans", esos "skinheads" o cabezas rapadas neonazis que tanto inquitan desde hace años
