The third and final play in Aeschylus' Oedipodea trilogy, Seven Against Thebes is the only one of the three plays that has survived intact to this day. During the course of the action-packed play, seven would-be usurpers storm the city's gates in a series of brutal attacks. Will the family -- still weakened by the curse put on its patriarch, Oedipus -- be able to marshal the strength to fight back?
The Iliad by Homer ( Book )
11 editions published between 1898 and 1965 in 3 languages and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The centuries old epic about the wrath of Achilles is rendered into modern English verse by a renowned translator and accompanied by an introduction that reassesses the identity of Homer. In Robert Fagles' beautifully rendered text, the Iliad overwhelms us afresh. The huge themes godlike, yet utterly human of savagery and calculation, of destiny defied, of triumph and grief compel our own humanity. Time after time, one pauses and re-reads before continuing. Fagles' voice is always that of a poet and scholar of our own age as he conveys the power of Homer. Robert Fagles and Bernard Knox are to be congratulated and praised on this admirable work

Ion by Euripides ( Book )
5 editions published between 1889 and 1924 in Greek, Ancient and Greek, Modern and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of Euripides' late plays, Ion tells the story of Kreousa, queen of Athens, and her son by the god Apollo. Apollo raped Kreousa; she secretly abandoned their child, assuming thereafter that the god had allowed him to die. Ion, however, is saved to become a ward of Apollo's temple at Delphi. In the play, Kreousa and her husband Xouthos go to Delphi to seek a remedy for their childlessness; Apollo, speaking through his oracle, gives Ion to Xouthos as a son, enraging the apparently still childless Kreousa. Mother tries to kill son, son traps mother at an altar and is about to do her violence; just then, Apollo's priestess appears to reveal the birth tokens that permit Kreousa to recognize and embrace the child she thought she had lost forever. Ion must accept Apollo's duplicity along with his benevolence toward his son. Disturbing riptides of thought and feeling run just below the often shimmering surface of this masterpiece of Euripidean melodrama. Despite Ion's "happy ending," the concatenation of mistaken identities, failed intrigues, and misdirected violence enacts a gripping and serious drama. Euripides leaves the audience to come to terms with the shifting relations of god and mortals in his complex and equivocal interpretation of myth
Alcestis by Euripides ( Book )
7 editions published between 1890 and 1960 in 3 languages and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alcestis is one of Euripides' richest and most brilliant - as well as most controversial - plays. The woman who died to save her husband has proved to have a hold on the imagination almost as strong as the man who killed his father and married his mother. But, apart from D. J. Conacher's student text, no annotated edition in English has appeared for more than fifty years. The present work is designed to aid close reading and to serve as an introduction to the serious study of the play in its various aspects. The introduction covers the background to the story in myth and folktale, its treatment by other writers from antiquity to the present, the critical reception of Euripides' play, and its textual transmission and metres. The notes are designed in particular to help readers who have been learning Greek for a relatively short time. More advanced matter, such as discussion of textual problems, is placed in square brackets at the end of the note."--BOOK JACKET
