1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can properly re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals. Under the general editorship of Peter Burian and Alan Shapiro, each volume includes a critical introduction, commentary on the text, full stage directions, and a glossary of the mythical and geographical references in the play."
Heracles and other plays by Euripides( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medea by Euripides( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale edition in English, with introduction, text, apparatus criticus and commentary, of a play by Seneca: the last edition of any kind appeared over sixty years ago. It's purpose is primarily to elucidate Seneca's play, but also to make the edition useful to students of English and French literature by showing some of its links with the work of later playwrights. Seneca's influence on European literature is well attested, and the Medea is particularly interesting, as it was preceded by Euripides' version and followed by many plays on the subject in England, France, and Germany, derived more or less closely from Seneca's. --pubisher description
