Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

730 editions published between 1567 and 2014 in 22 languages and held by 4,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides' Alcestic - perhaps the most anthologized Attic drama - is an ideal test for students reading their first play in the original Greek. Literary commentaries and language aids in most editions are too advanced or too elementary for intermediate students of the language, but in this new student edition, C.A.E. Luschnig and H.M. Roisman remedy such deficiencies." "The introductory section of this edition provides historical and literary perspective; the commentary explains points of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as elucidating background features such as dramatic conventions and mythology; and a discussion section introduces the controversies surrounding this most elusive drama. In their presentation, Luschnig and Roisman have initiated a new method for introducing students to current scholarship." "This edition also includes a glossary, an index, a bibliography, and grammatical reviews designed specifically for students of Greek language and culture in their second year of university study or third year of high school"--Jacket

The Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

65 editions published between 1821 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Classical Greek drama is brought vividly to life in this series of new translations. The new versions remain faithful to the original Greek, yet the language has all the immediacy of contemporary English. The result is a series of genuinely actable plays, which bring students as close as possible to the playwrights' original words and intentions." "Students are encouraged to engage with the text through detailed commentaries, which include suggestions for discussion and analysis. In addition, numerous practical questions stimulate ideas on staging and encourage students to explore the play's dramatic qualities." "Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama is suitable for students of both Classical Civilization and Drama. Useful features include: full synopsis of the play; commentary alongside translation for easy reference; time line to set the play in its historical context; guide to pronunciation of names; and index of topics and themes."--Jacket
Hippolytos by Euripides( Book )

105 editions published between 1756 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Hippolytos van Euripides (480-406 v.C.) Is net als de Medea een tragedie van liefde en wraak. Ook hier voelt de vrouw, in dit geval Faidra, zich verraden in haar liefde voor haar stiefzoon Hippolytos, die als trouw aanhanger van de kuise godin Artemis afkerig was van seksuele contacten en haar avances radicaal afwees. Om gezichtsverlies en vernedering te vermijden besluit Faidra tot zelfmoord maar sleurt tegelijk Hippolytos mee in de afgrond door een verzonnen aanklacht van verkrachting
The Bacchae of Euripides by Euripides( Book )

43 editions published between 1853 and 2013 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Williams handles the spoken poetry in a flexible verse that encompasses a wide range of tone. His treatment of the lyrics uses a rhythmically bold form whose accents would particularly lend themsleves to effective choral acting

The Trojan women of Euripides by Euripides( Book )

81 editions published between 1881 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hecuba by Euripides( Book )

124 editions published between 1543 and 2008 in 14 languages and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Tragödie handelt vom Leid der kriegsgefangenen Trojanerinnen und ihrer früheren Königin Hekabe. Es geht um ein Menschenopfer, den Mord an einem wehrlosen Kind und eine grausame Blutrache. Die Düsterkeit der hier dargestellten Welt, aus der sich die Götter anscheinend zurückgezogen haben, mag den moderen Zuschauer und Leser befremden. Man kann aber zu einem historisch angemesseneren Verständnis dieses "schwärzesten Stückes des Euripides" gelangen, wenn man versucht, es mit den Augen der Zeitgenossen zu sehen
Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

4 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in Dutch and English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iphigeneia, sister of the troubled Orestes, was the daughter of Agamemnon. No ideal father, Agamemnon had aimed to sacrifice Iphigeneia before the Trojan War in the hopes of guaranteeing victory, a sacrifice that was only undone by the intervention of Artemis. Now Iphigeneia lives in forced religious servitude, in a haze of dreams and blood sacrifice at a temple to Artemis on the Crimean coast. As a result of one of these dreams, she comes to believe that Orestes is dead; the play opens with her lamentations. Instead, Orestes is on his way to the very temple at which she serves, in the hopes of stealing an icon, a task demanded of him by the god Apollo. When Orestes is caught, Iphigeneia, not recognising her brother, must offer his life to Artemis as one of the regular Hellenic sacrifices. It is only after Orestes reveals his identity that Iphigeneia will plot against the gods to help her brother, and herself, escape from the temple with their lives
The Electra of Euripides by Euripides( Book )

83 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herakles by Euripides( Book )

88 editions published between 1879 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Herakles, Euripides reveals with great subtlety and complexity the often brutal underpinnings of our social arrangements. The play enacts a thoroughly contemporary dilemma about the relationship between personal and state violence and civic order." "Of all of Euripides' plays, this is his most skeptically subversive examination of myth, morality, and power. While Herakles is away from home performing his labors, a tyrant rises to power and threatens to execute Herakles' wife, children, and father-in-law. Herakles returns just in time to assassinate the tyrant and rescue his family. But at the moment of celebration, Madness appears and drives Herakles to murder his wife and children, eventually leading to his exile, by his own accord, to Athens."--Jacket
Rhesos by Euripides( Book )

35 editions published between 1868 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a futile quest for knowledge, this ancient anti-war drama is one of the neglected plays within the corpus of Greek tragedy. Euripides' shortest tragic work, Rhesos is unique in lacking a prologue, provoking some scholars to the conclusion that the beginning of the play has been lost. In this exciting translation, Rhesos is no longer treated as a derivative Euripidean work, but rather as the tightly-knit tragedy of knowledge it really is. A drama in which profound problems of fate and free will come alive, Rhesos is also an exploration of the perversion of values that come as the r
Orestes by Euripides( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Produced more frequently on the ancient stage than any other tragedy, Orestes retells with striking innovations the story of the young man who kills his mother to avenge her murder of his father. Though eventually exonerated, Orestes becomes a fugitive from the Furies (avenging spirits) of his mother's blood. On the brink of destruction, he is saved in the end by Apollo, who had commanded the matricide. Powerful and gripping, Orestes sweeps us along with a momentum that, starting slowly, builds inevitably to one of the most spectacular climaxes in all Greek tragedy
The Trojan women by Euripides( Book )

13 editions published between 1915 and 2012 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new translation of the classic play. It combines a poet's translation with a scholar's introduction and notes." "Among surviving Greek tragedies only Euripides' Trojan Women shows us the extinction of a whole city, an entire people. Despite its grim theme, or more likely because of the centrality of that theme to the deepest fears of our own age, this is one of the relatively few Greek tragedies that regularly finds its way to the stage. Here the power of Euripides' theatrical and moral imagination speaks clearly across the twenty-five centuries that separate our world from his." "The theme is really a double one: the suffering of the victims of war, exemplified by the woman who survive the fall of Troy, and the degradation of the victors, shown by the Greeks' reckless and ultimately self-destructive behavior. It offers an enduring picture of human fortitude in the midst of despair. Trojan Women gains special relevance, of course, in times of war. It presents a particularly intense account of human suffering and uncertainty, but one that is also rooted in considerations of power and policy, morality and expedience. Furthermore, the seductions of power and the dangers both of its exercise and of resistance to it as portrayed in Trojan Women are not simply philosophical or rhetorical gambits but part of the lived experience of Euripides' day."--Jacket
Medea, and other plays by Euripides( Book )

25 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four plays in this volume all show Euripides to have been a man defiant of established beliefs, and preoccupied with the dichotomy between instinctive and civilized behaviour. And his daring interpretations of ancient myths are enhanced by his brilliance as a lyricist, for Euripides' choral odes are among the most beautiful ever written
The Bacchae, and other plays by Euripides( Book )

38 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plays of Euripides have stimulated audiences since the fifth century BC. This volume, containing Phoenician Women, Bacchae, Iphigenia at Aulis, Orestes, and Rhesus completes the new editions of Euripides in Penguin Classics. --Penguin Books
