Most widely held works by Euripides
Medea by Euripides( Book )

1,716 editions published between 1539 and 2018 in 32 languages and held by 9,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medea is the archetypal wronged women driven to despair. When uncontrollable anger is unleashed, the obsessed mind's capacity for revenge knows no bounds
The Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

838 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 7,373 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
Hippolytos by Euripides( Book )

684 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 4,844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides' play tells the story of Phaidra's love for her step-son Hippolytos, Theseus's illegitimate son, a man so devoted to his chastity and the cult of Artemis that he spurns the goddess of love Aphrodite. To return the insult, she condemns him via his stepmother's passion, causing the subsequent fall of the royal house. A play that at once cautions people not to disregard the strength of the divine, but also illustrates the futility of trying to second-guess its intention, 'Hippolytos' is an astonishing and disturbing tragedy
Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

886 editions published between 1567 and 2017 in 23 languages and held by 4,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides' Alcestis - 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
Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

537 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 4,431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides' Iphigenia in Tauris' is the tale of how two children of Agamemnon whose lives have been blighted in youth are brought together for mutual salvation and for the healing of the calamitous house of Pelops. Aristotle makes more complimentary references to the play than any other Attic tragedy, apart from Sophocles' Oedipus the King--and even less favourable critics recognize the extraordinary skill of its construction. Comprising an introduction, the Greek text, and commentary, this volume is designed to be useful to a wide range of readers, facilitating a close and accurate reading of one of Euripides' more frequently studied plays. The introduction explores earlier and later reinterpretations of the story of Iphigenia, the adoption of narrative motifs in comedy, and the ancient novel, differing critical assessments, and more technical information on metre and textual transmission. The commentary features guidance on vocabulary and syntax, while more advanced material, including textual discussion, is included in the notes"--Back cover
The Trojan women by Euripides( Book )

450 editions published between 1575 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 4,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As bleak and agonizing a portrait of war as ever to appear on the stage, The Trojan Women is a masterpiece of pathos as well as a timeless and chilling indictment of war's brutality
Ion by Euripides( Book )

376 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 3,297 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
Hecuba by Euripides( Book )

547 editions published between 1543 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 3,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Troy has fallen to the Greeks, and Hecuba, its beloved queen, is widowed and enslaved. She mourns her great city and the death of her husband, but when fresh horrors emerge, her grief turns to rage and a lust for revenge. 'Hecuba' premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London in September 2004
Iphigeneia at Aulis by Euripides( Book )

504 editions published between 1729 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 3,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new translation of Euripides' celebrated Greek tragedy, W.S. Merwin and George E. Dimock, Jr. offer a compelling look at the devastating consequence of 'man's inhumanity to man.' A stern critique of Greek culture, Iphigeneia at Aulis condemns the Trojan War by depicting the power of political ambition and the ensuing repercussions of thoughtlessly falling to the will of constituency. The translation impressively re-creates the broad array of moral and emotional tones conveyed by Euripides, with a comprehensive introduction, notes on the text, and a glossary of mythica
Helen by Euripides( Book )

216 editions published between 1752 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twee drama's van de Griekse toneelschrijver (c. 480-406 voor Chr.)
Cyclops by Euripides( Book )

390 editions published between 1582 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 2,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can properly re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals. Under the general editorship of Peter Burian and Alan Shapiro, each volume includes a critical introduction, commentary on the text, full stage directions, and a glossary of the mythical and geographical references in the play." "Brimming with lusty comedy and horror, this new version of Euripides' only extent satyr play has been refreshed with all the salty humor, vigorous music, and dramatic shapeliness available in modern American English." "Driven by storms onto the shores of the Cyclops' Island, Odysseus and his men find that the Cyclops has already enslaved a horde of satyrs. When some of Odysseus' crew are seized and eaten by the Cyclops, Odysseus resorts to spectacular stratagems to free his crew and escape the island. In this powerful work, poet Heather McHugh and classicist David Konstan combine their talents to create an unusually strong tragicomedy marked by lively lyricism and moral subtlety"--Jacket
The complete Greek drama; all the extant tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, and the comedies of Aristophanes and Menander, in a variety of translations by Whitney J Oates( Book )

1 edition published in 1938 in English and held by 2,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heracles by Euripides( Book )

292 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 2,178 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
The Phoenician women by Euripides( Book )

186 editions published between 1577 and 2009 in 10 languages and held by 2,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tragedie van de Griekse schrijver (480-406 v.Chr.) over de machtsstrijd tussen de zonen van Oidipous
Andromache by Euripides( Book )

297 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Andromache, Euripides challenges our concept of tragic character as he transforms our expectations of tragic structure. Through its subtly varied metrics, the play develops an increasingly complex plot and concludes with a simultaneous realization of realism and supernaturalism. The play takes place in the aftermath of the Trojan War. Andromache has become a concubine to Achilles' son, Neoptolemus, bearing him a child, Molossus. The captive Andromache is haunted by memories of her former life and by her love for Hector and their son Astyanax, both slain by the Greeks who are now her masters. As the play opens, Andromache and Molossus are threatened with death by Neoptolemus' young wife, Hermione, who has been unable to conceive a child and is fiercely jealous. The struggle between the two women is mirrored in the conflict between Peleus, who arrives to defend Andromache, and Menelaus, who arrives to help his daughter Hermione complete her bid for power."--Back cover
Electra by Euripides( Book )

338 editions published between 1545 and 2013 in 19 languages and held by 1,734 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
The children of Herakles by Euripides( Book )

214 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of the Heraclidae is how the children of Heracles, under the care of Iolaus and Alemena, were driven from city to city throughout Greece, fleeing the wrath of Eurystheus, king of Argos, who hated them for their father's sake
Orestes by Euripides( Book )

360 editions published between 1536 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 1,456 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.</sp
Rhesos by Euripides( Book )

40 editions published between 1868 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 683 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
Medea, and other plays by Euripides( Book )

30 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four tragedies collected in this volume all focus on a central character, once powerful, brought down by betrayal, jealousy, guilt and hatred. The first playwright to depict suffering without a reference to gods, Euripides (484 - 407 BC) made his characters speak in human terms and face the consequences of their actions
