The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

9 editions published between 1920 and 1923 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three plays of the Oresteia portray the bloody events that follow the victorious return of King Agamemnon from the Trojan War, at the start of which he had sacrificed his daughter Iphigeneia to secure divine favor. After Iphigeneia's mother, Clytemnestra, kills her husband in revenge, she in turn is murdered by their son Orestes with his sister Electra's encouragement. Orestes is pursued by the Furies and put on trial, his fate decided by the goddess Athena. Far more than the story of murder and vengeance in the royal house of Atteus, the Oresteia serves as a dramatic parable of the evolution of justice and civilization that is still powerful after 2,500 years."--Jacket

Prometheus bound by Aeschylus( Book )

9 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods
Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles( Book )

8 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life. At the center of the play is the mysterious transformation of Oedipus from an old and blind beggar, totally dependent on his daughters, to the man who rises from his seat and, without help, leads everyone to the place where he is destined to die. In the background of this transformation stands the grove of the Furies, the sacred place of the implacable goddesses who pursue the violators of blood relationships. Although Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, is an obvious target of the Furies' vengeance, he enters their grove at the beginning of the play, sure that it is the resting place Apollo has predicted for him. The reversals and paradoxes in the play speak to the struggle that Oedipus' life and the action of the play bring vividly before us: how do we as humans, subject to constant change, find stable ground on which to stand and define our moral lives? Sophocles offers his play as a witness to the remarkable human capacity to persevere in this struggle."--Jacket

Medea by Euripides( Book )

5 editions published in 1939 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all the Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood." "Medea is a story of betrayal and vengeance, and one which gives an excellent example of the prominence and complexity that Euripides gave to his female characters. Medea, wife of Jason, is incensed that her husband would leave her to make a political marriage after the many sacrifices she has made for him. In her wrath, she murders both his new bride and their own children, thus taking her revenge. This new translation does full justice to the lyricism of Euripides' original work, while a new introduction provides a guide to the play, complete with interesting details about the traditions and social issues that influenced Euripides' world."--Jacket
