    schema:reviewBody ""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." ;
