The complete Greek drama; all the extant tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, and the comedies of Aristophanes and Menander, in a variety of translations by Whitney J Oates( Book )

2 editions published in 1938 in English and held by 2,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

126 editions published between 1825 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 1,775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides' Iphigenia in Tauris' is the tale of how two children of Agamemnon whose lives have been blighted in youth are brought together for mutual salvation and for the healing of the calamitous house of Pelops. Aristotle makes more complimentary references to the play than any other Attic tragedy, apart from Sophocles' Oedipus the King, and even less favourable critics recognize the extraordinary skill of its construction. Comprising an introduction, the Greek text, and commentary, this volume is designed to be useful to a wide range of readers, facilitating a close and accurate reading of one of Euripides' more frequently studied plays. The introduction explores earlier and later re-interpretations of the story of Iphigenia, the adoption of narrative motifs in New Comedy, Roman comedy, and the ancient novel, differing critical assessments, and more technical information on metre and textual transmission. The commentary features guidance on vocabulary and syntax, while more advanced material, including textual discussion, is included in parenthesis
Andromache by Euripides( Book )

246 editions published between 1730 and 2012 in 13 languages and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Andromache, Euripides challenges our concept of tragic character as he transforms our expectations of tragic structure. Through its subtly varied metrics, the play develops an increasingly complex plot and concludes with a simultaneous realization of realism and supernaturalism. The play takes place in the aftermath of the Trojan War. Andromache has become a concubine to Achilles' son, Neoptolemus, bearing him a child, Molossus. The captive Andromache is haunted by memories of her former life and by her love for Hector and their son Astyanax, both slain by the Greeks who are now her masters. As the play opens, Andromache and Molossus are threatened with death by Neoptolemus' young wife, Hermione, who has been unable to conceive a child and is fiercely jealous. The struggle between the two women is mirrored in the conflict between Peleus, who arrives to defend Andromache, and Menelaus, who arrives to help his daughter Hermione complete her bid for power."--Back cover

"This book demonstrates the importance of Greek medical thought in the work of Euripides. The first part of the book argues for the significance of the healing figure in Euripidean drama, while the second part analyzes the role of traditional and rationalist healing strategies in the construction of Euripidean plots and arguments. The work will be of interest to those pursuing studies in Greek drama, Greek intellectual history and Greek medicine."--Jacket

Euripidean drama; myth, theme and structure by D. J Conacher( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is a commonly held view among historians of Greek literature that with the advent of Euripides the tragic structure, even the tragic outlook of Greek drama, suffered a breakdown from which it never recovered. While there is much truth in this opinion, it has tended to put too much emphasis on 'Euripides the destroyer' rather than ' the creator'. In this study the author's main purpose is to redress the balance and to discuss the structure and techniques of Euripidean drama in relation to its new and richly varied themes."--Publisher description
