82 editions published between 1906 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ancient Greek tragedy by Euripides, Medea is based on the myth of Jason and Medea and was first published in 431 BC. Main character Medea plots her revenge on her husband, Jason, after he has been unfaithful with another woman. After epic battles and strange adventures, the play ends with Medea taking the bodies of her slain children away from Jason, so that he may never hold his children again. Widely studied around the world, the play is considered a feminist text as it explores the disadvantages of being a woman in societies like those of ancient Greece
Electra by Euripides( Book )

90 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This vital translation of Euripides' Electra recreates the prize-winning excitement of the original play. Electra, obsessed by dreams of avenging her father's murder, impatiently awaits the return of her exiled brother Orestes. After his arrival Electra uses Orestes as her instrument of vengeance, killing their mother's husband, then their mother herself - and only afterward do they see the evil inherent in these seemingly just acts. But in his usual fashion, Euripides has imbued myth with the reality of human experience, counterposing suspense and horror with comic realism and down-to-earth comments on life
