Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

1,012 editions published between 1570 and 2018 in 24 languages and held by 8,762 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
Euripides by Euripides( Book )

1,015 editions published between 1597 and 2018 in 17 languages and held by 7,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A limited edition broadside featuring 4th Choral Ode from Euripides' Hippolytos (1268-1281), translated by Anne Carson. Hippolytos was published as part of Grief Lessons: Four Plays by Euripides (NYRB Classics, 2006)"--Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on July 23, 2014
The Trojan women by Euripides( Book )

444 editions published between 1575 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 6,598 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
Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

475 editions published between 1730 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 5,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the translation of the Euripides play about the princess Iphigeneia who narrowly avoided death by sacrifice at the hands of her father, Agamemnon. She was saved by the goddess Artemis, to whom the sacrifice was to be made, and swept off to Tauris. As a priestess at the goddess' temple, she has the gruesome task of ritually sacrificing foreigners who land on King Thoas's shores. It has much in common with another of the Greek playwright's work, Helen, as well as the lost play Andromeda, and is often described as a romance, a melodrama, a tragi-comedy or an escape play
Hecuba by Euripides( Book )

681 editions published between 1544 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 4,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A translation of Euripides' play, "Hecuba," in which Hecuba grieves over the loss of a daughter and takes revenge for her fallen son
Ion by Euripides( Book )

350 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 4,366 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
Orestes by Euripides( Book )

381 editions published between 1536 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 3,920 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
Iphigeneia at Aulis by Euripides( Book )

476 editions published between 1730 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 3,754 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
Electra by Euripides( Book )

504 editions published between 1545 and 2017 in 18 languages and held by 3,677 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
Helen by Euripides( Book )

195 editions published between 1752 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 3,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

379 editions published between 1582 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 3,419 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
Heracles by Euripides( Book )

305 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 3,304 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 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 )

9 editions published in 1938 in English and held by 2,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andromache by Euripides( Book )

304 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andromache, written in the early years of the Peloponnesian War, shows the effects of war on the conquerors and the conquered. The other main theme is the role and nature of women, explored through the conflict between the contrasting figures of Andromache and Hermione. The play has a bold and original structure, which finds room for paranoia, nymphomania, racialism, blackmail, treachery, mental breakdown, elopement and revenge. The climax is a messenger speech describing the lynching of Neoptolemus in the temple of Apollo at Delphi."--BOOK JACKET
The Bacchae of Euripides by Euripides( Book )

186 editions published between 1852 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV> This new translation of The Bacchae- that strange blend of Aeschylean grandeur and Euripidean finesse-is an attempt to reproduce for the American stage the play as it most probably was when new and unmutilated in 406 B.C. The achievement of this aim involves a restoration of the ""great lacuna"" at the climax and the discovery of several primary stage effects very likely intended by Euripides. These effects and controversial questions of the composition and stylistics are discussed in the notes and the accompanying essay. </DIV>
Rhesos by Euripides( )

32 editions published between 1912 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the dark of night, intrigues and treachery flourish beneath the walls of the besieged Troy. A chorus of sentries stands guard while spies and heroes scheme to turn the tides of war in their favour. In 'Rhesos', Euripides portrays the reality of war, in which there is no place for honour
