"Three plays are in Volume IV of this ongoing edition. Trojan Women, a play about the causes and consequences of war, develops the theme of the tragic unpredictability of life. Iphigenia among the Taurians and Ion exhibit tragic themes and situations but end happily with joyful reunions."--Jacket."
