Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( )

20 editions published between 1973 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,239 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
The odes of Pindar by Pindar( Book )

37 editions published between 1926 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 1,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these odes of victory we are transported in a "blaze of whirling song" to the Greece of the heroes and of the sacred games. As Pindar celebrated the particular victory, invoked the protective deity and told the myths from heroic legend, he expressed the human spirit's loneliness, joy, bitterness and sorrow. The great poet's bold phrasing, deep knowledge of human nature and awareness that "man is of a day" ring strangely modern

Story patterns in Greek tragedy by Richmond Lattimore( Book )

26 editions published between 1964 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Aristotle said that tragedy is an imitation of action, he meant that apart from other purposes and interests tragedy always acts out a story. With this definition in mind, the author examines the most important story patterns found in Greek tragedy. He asks: What are the most important story patterns found in Greek drama? What stories were available for the use of poets like Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides? What did tradition require, permit or forbid them to use? Bringing in many related elements of Greek tragedy, the author defines each of the story patterns suitable to the genre -- tracing the roots to the folklore and myths of ancient Greece."--Back cover

12 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extraordinary drama of flight and rescue arising from women's resistance to marriage, The Suppliants is surprising both for its exotic color and for its forceful enactment of the primal struggle between male and female, lust and terror, brutality and cunning. In his translation of this ancient Greek drama, Peter Burian introduces a new generation of readers to a powerful work of Aeschylus' later years. He conveys the strength and daring of Aeschylus' language in the idiom of our own time, while respecting what is essentially classical in this dramatist's art: the rigor of the formal cons
