Expert student edition of Euripides’ enduring Classical tragedy about filial revenge, in an up-to-date translation with notes, commentaries, chronology and background to the play.

Euripides was born near Athens circa 480 BC and grew up during the years of the Athenian recovery after the Persian Wars. His first play was presented in 455 BC and he wrote some 100 altogether, of which 19 survived. He died in 406 BC.

Industry Reviews

“Euripides, the Athenian playwright who dared to question the whims of wanton gods, has always been the most intriguing of the Greek tragedians. Now, with translations aimed at the stage rather than the page, his restless intellect strikes the chord it always should have... a remarkable achievement both in itself and in reclaiming Euripides as a playwright whose works are still gloriously alive.”—"Evening Standard"
