Aeschyli Tragoediae : cum incerti poetae Prometheo by Aeschylus( Book )

114 editions published between 1864 and 1929 in 5 languages and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical scholar and philologist Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848), professor of classics at Leipzig, was especially influential in the fields of Greek grammar and poetical metres. He was among the leading scholars who argued that an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages was crucial for understanding the intellectual life of the ancient world, and should be the chief aim of philology, the study of the development of languages. Only seven of the plays of Aeschylus, the father of Greek tragedy, survive in complete form, and Hermann's was the first critical edition to contain all of them. It was published in Leipzig in two volumes in 1852, four years after his death. Volume 1 contains the texts of all of Aeschylus' tragedies and of Prometheus Bound, of which the authorship is attributed to Aeschylus, and an appendix of notes

Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

20 editions published between 1881 and 1929 in 4 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides was the key figure in transforming the familiar figures of Greek mythology from awe-inspiring but remote heroes into recognizable, fallible human beings. His characters, all superbly eloquent, draw on fierce contemporary debates about the nature of justice, politics and religion. His women are perhaps the most sympathetically and powerfully presented in ancient literature

34 editions published between 1877 and 1974 in 4 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iphigeneia at Aulis by Euripides( Book )

36 editions published between 1878 and 1980 in 5 languages and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new translation of Euripides' celebrated Greek tragedy, W.S. Merwin and George E. Dimock, Jr. offer a compelling look at the devastating consequence of 'man's inhumanity to man.' A stern critique of Greek culture, Iphigeneia at Aulis condemns the Trojan War by depicting the power of political ambition and the ensuing repercussions of thoughtlessly falling to the will of constituency. The translation impressively re-creates the broad array of moral and emotional tones conveyed by Euripides, with a comprehensive introduction, notes on the text, and a glossary of mythica
Prometheus bound by Aeschylus( Book )

34 editions published between 1864 and 1932 in 7 languages and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods

Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

24 editions published between 1878 and 1937 in 4 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the second of three volumes of a new prose translation, with introduction and notes, of eleven of Euripides' most exciting plays. Iphigenia among the Taurians, set on the Black Sea at the edge of the known world, is much more than a nail-biting story of escape. It is remarkable for its sensitive delineation of character as it weighs Greek against barbarian civilization. Bacchae, a profound exploration of the human psyche, deals with the appalling consequences of resistance to Dionysus, god of wine and unfettered emotion. This tragedy, which above all others speaks to our post-Freudian era, is one of Euripides' two last surviving plays. The second, Iphigenia at Aulis, so vastly different as to highlight the playwright's Protean invention, centres on the ultimate dysfunctional family, that of Agamemnon, as natural emotion is tested in the tragic crucible of the Greek expedition against Troy. Rhesus, probably the work of another playwright, deals with a grisly event in the Trojan War. Like Iphigenia at Aulis, its 'suspect is war and the pity of war', but it is also a thrilling, action-packed theatrical Iliad in miniature."--Jacket
