The Trojan women by Euripides( Book )

144 editions published between 1881 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As bleak and agonizing a portrait of war as ever to appear on the stage, The Trojan Women is a masterpiece of pathos as well as a timeless and chilling indictment of war's brutality
Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

25 editions published between 1911 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iphigeneia, sister of the troubled Orestes, was the daughter of Agamemnon. No ideal father, Agamemnon had aimed to sacrifice Iphigeneia before the Trojan War in the hopes of guaranteeing victory, a sacrifice that was only undone by the intervention of Artemis. Now Iphigeneia lives in forced religious servitude, in a haze of dreams and blood sacrifice at a temple to Artemis on the Crimean coast. As a result of one of these dreams, she comes to believe that Orestes is dead; the play opens with her lamentations. Instead, Orestes is on his way to the very temple at which she serves, in the hopes of stealing an icon, a task demanded of him by the god Apollo. When Orestes is caught, Iphigeneia, not recognising her brother, must offer his life to Artemis as one of the regular Hellenic sacrifices. It is only after Orestes reveals his identity that Iphigeneia will plot against the gods to help her brother, and herself, escape from the temple with their lives

"For his Helen the poet employs an alternative history in which a virtuous and faithful Helen never went to Troy but spent the war years in Egypt, falsely blamed for the actions of her divinely created double in Troy. Volume V also includes Phoenician Women, Euripides' treatment of the battle between the sons of Oedipus for control of Thebes (the story told by Aeschylus in Seven against Thebes); and Orestes, a novel retelling of Orestes' lot after he murdered his mother, Clytaemestra."--Jacket
