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 )

733 editions published between 1730 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 6,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Regarded by many as Euripides' masterpiece, Bakkhai examines both the horror and the beauty of the religious ecstasy that Dionysos brings to Thebes. His offer of closeness to nature and freedom from the constraints of civilization, especially for women, excites bitter resistance as well as fanatical acceptance." "Disguised as a young holy man and accompanied by his band of Asian worshipers, the god Dionysos arrives in Greece at Thebes, proclaims his godhood and his new religion, and drives the Theban women mad. When the Theban king, Pentheus, tries to imprison him, Dionysos afflicts Pentheus himself with madness and leads him, dressed as a bacchant, to the mountains, where his own mother, Agaue, and her companions tear him to pieces in an insane Bacchic frenzy."
Hippolytos by Euripides( Book )

677 editions published between 1730 and 2015 in 16 languages and held by 4,820 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 )

818 editions published between 1567 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 4,552 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 Trojan women by Euripides( Book )

435 editions published between 1575 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 4,208 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 )

375 editions published between 1730 and 2014 in 17 languages and held by 3,264 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
Iphigeneia at Aulis by Euripides( Book )

357 editions published between 1729 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,709 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
Hecuba by Euripides( Book )

612 editions published between 1544 and 2013 in 16 languages and held by 2,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a thorough philological and dramatic commentary on Euripides' Phoenissae, the first detailed commentary in English since 1911

The Bacchae of Euripides by Euripides( Book )

280 editions published between 1852 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,457 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
Cyclops by Euripides( Book )

379 editions published between 1582 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 2,249 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

Herakles by Euripides( Book )

98 editions published between 1879 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 709 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 )

38 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
Medea, and other plays by Euripides( Book )

28 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 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
