Most widely held works by Euripides
Alcestis by Euripides( Book )
748 editions published between 1567 and 2014 in 21 languages and held by 4,277 libraries worldwide
"Euripides' Alcestic - perhaps the most anthologized Attic drama - is an ideal test for students reading their first play in the original Greek. Literary commentaries and language aids in most editions are too advanced or too elementary for intermediate students of the language, but in this new student edition, C.A.E. Luschnig and H.M. Roisman remedy such deficiencies." "The introductory section of this edition provides historical and literary perspective; the commentary explains points of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as elucidating background features such as dramatic conventions and mythology; and a discussion section introduces the controversies surrounding this most elusive drama. In their presentation, Luschnig and Roisman have initiated a new method for introducing students to current scholarship." "This edition also includes a glossary, an index, a bibliography, and grammatical reviews designed specifically for students of Greek language and culture in their second year of university study or third year of high school"--Jacket

"Classical Greek drama is brought vividly to life in this series of new translations. The new versions remain faithful to the original Greek, yet the language has all the immediacy of contemporary English. The result is a series of genuinely actable plays, which bring students as close as possible to the playwrights' original words and intentions." "Students are encouraged to engage with the text through detailed commentaries, which include suggestions for discussion and analysis. In addition, numerous practical questions stimulate ideas on staging and encourage students to explore the play's dramatic qualities." "Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama is suitable for students of both Classical Civilization and Drama. Useful features include: full synopsis of the play; commentary alongside translation for easy reference; time line to set the play in its historical context; guide to pronunciation of names; and index of topics and themes."--Jacket
Hippolytos by Euripides( Book )
109 editions published between 1756 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,389 libraries worldwide
De Hippolytos van Euripides (480-406 v.C.) Is net als de Medea een tragedie van liefde en wraak. Ook hier voelt de vrouw, in dit geval Faidra, zich verraden in haar liefde voor haar stiefzoon Hippolytos, die als trouw aanhanger van de kuise godin Artemis afkerig was van seksuele contacten en haar avances radicaal afwees. Om gezichtsverlies en vernedering te vermijden besluit Faidra tot zelfmoord maar sleurt tegelijk Hippolytos mee in de afgrond door een verzonnen aanklacht van verkrachting

45 editions published between 1853 and 2013 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 1,135 libraries worldwide
Williams handles the spoken poetry in a flexible verse that encompasses a wide range of tone. His treatment of the lyrics uses a rhythmically bold form whose accents would particularly lend themsleves to effective choral acting

Hecuba by Euripides( Book )
119 editions published between 1543 and 2008 in 14 languages and held by 890 libraries worldwide
Die Tragödie handelt vom Leid der kriegsgefangenen Trojanerinnen und ihrer früheren Königin Hekabe. Es geht um ein Menschenopfer, den Mord an einem wehrlosen Kind und eine grausame Blutrache. Die Düsterkeit der hier dargestellten Welt, aus der sich die Götter anscheinend zurückgezogen haben, mag den moderen Zuschauer und Leser befremden. Man kann aber zu einem historisch angemesseneren Verständnis dieses "schwärzesten Stückes des Euripides" gelangen, wenn man versucht, es mit den Augen der Zeitgenossen zu sehen
Cyclops by Euripides( Book )
107 editions published between 1605 and 2009 in 11 languages and held by 863 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." "Brimming with lusty comedy and horror, this new version of Euripides' only extent satyr play has been refreshed with all the salty humor, vigorous music, and dramatic shapeliness available in modern American English." "Driven by storms onto the shores of the Cyclops' Island, Odysseus and his men find that the Cyclops has already enslaved a horde of satyrs. When some of Odysseus' crew are seized and eaten by the Cyclops, Odysseus resorts to spectacular stratagems to free his crew and escape the island. In this powerful work, poet Heather McHugh and classicist David Konstan combine their talents to create an unusually strong tragicomedy marked by lively lyricism and moral subtlety"--Jacket
Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )
4 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in Dutch and English and held by 796 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
The Electra of Euripides by Euripides( Book )
86 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in English and held by 744 libraries worldwide
Herakles by Euripides( Book )
96 editions published between 1879 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 700 libraries worldwide
"In Herakles, Euripides reveals with great subtlety and complexity the often brutal underpinnings of our social arrangements. The play enacts a thoroughly contemporary dilemma about the relationship between personal and state violence and civic order." "Of all of Euripides' plays, this is his most skeptically subversive examination of myth, morality, and power. While Herakles is away from home performing his labors, a tyrant rises to power and threatens to execute Herakles' wife, children, and father-in-law. Herakles returns just in time to assassinate the tyrant and rescue his family. But at the moment of celebration, Madness appears and drives Herakles to murder his wife and children, eventually leading to his exile, by his own accord, to Athens."--Jacket
Rhesos by Euripides( Book )
35 editions published between 1858 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 681 libraries worldwide
In the dark of night, intrigues and treachery flourish beneath the walls of the besieged Troy. A chorus of sentries stands guard while spies and heroes scheme to turn the tides of war in their favour. In 'Rhesos', Euripides portrays the reality of war, in which there is no place for honour
Orestes by Euripides( Book )
12 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 521 libraries worldwide
Produced more frequently on the ancient stage than any other tragedy, Orestes retells with striking innovations the story of the young man who kills his mother to avenge her murder of his father. Though eventually exonerated, Orestes becomes a fugitive from the Furies (avenging spirits) of his mother's blood. On the brink of destruction, he is saved in the end by Apollo, who had commanded the matricide. Powerful and gripping, Orestes sweeps us along with a momentum that, starting slowly, builds inevitably to one of the most spectacular climaxes in all Greek tragedy
The Trojan women by Euripides( Book )
10 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in English and held by 300 libraries worldwide
Medea, and other plays by Euripides( Book )
25 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 227 libraries worldwide
The four plays in this volume all show Euripides to have been a man defiant of established beliefs, and preoccupied with the dichotomy between instinctive and civilized behaviour. And his daring interpretations of ancient myths are enhanced by his brilliance as a lyricist, for Euripides' choral odes are among the most beautiful ever written
