One of antiquity's greatest poets, Euripides (ca. 485-406 BCE)
has been prized in every age for the pathos, terror, surprising
plot twists, and intellectual probing of his dramatic creations.
Here, in the third volume of a new edition that is receiving much
praise, are four of his plays.
"Suppliant Women" reflects on war and on the rule of law.
Euripides' "Electra"--presenting the famous legend of a brother and
sister who seek revenge on their mother for killing their
father--is a portrayal interestingly different from that of
Aeschylus or Sophocles. "Heracles" shows the malice of the
gods--and mutual loyalty as the human response to divinely sent
disaster. And the theme of the tragic unpredictability of life is
developed in "Trojan Women."David Kovacs gives us a freshly edited
Greek text and a new translation that, in the words of "Greece and
Rome," is "close to the Greek and reads fluently and well."
