Aeschylus, the creator of tragedy by Gilbert Murray( Book )

Shows how Aeschylus started with the raw material which Aristotle called 'little myths and ridiculous language' and transformed it into a style of drama which had never existed before.

Iphigeneia in Tauris by Euripides( Book )

58 editions published between 1910 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 957 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

Stoic, Christian and humanist by Gilbert Murray( Book )

48 editions published between 1940 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book collects together four essays by the very well-known academic Gilbert Murray that were first presented between 1914 and 1939. The author seeks to present a statement of his profound belief in ethics and disbelief in revelational religions. The philosophy of this great thinker is accessibly written while it addresses deep questions of the nature of morality and the basis of religions. This collection was first published in 1940
Electra by Euripides( Book )

86 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 799 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
