Medea by Euripides( Book )

46 editions published between 1881 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all the Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood." "Medea is a story of betrayal and vengeance, and one which gives an excellent example of the prominence and complexity that Euripides gave to his female characters. Medea, wife of Jason, is incensed that her husband would leave her to make a political marriage after the many sacrifices she has made for him. In her wrath, she murders both his new bride and their own children, thus taking her revenge. This new translation does full justice to the lyricism of Euripides' original work, while a new introduction provides a guide to the play, complete with interesting details about the traditions and social issues that influenced Euripides' world."--Jacket

Fearing the invaders, and feeling the fear of his people, Eteocles vows to fight Polynices man to man for the future of the city. Instead, they kill one another in battle beneath the seventh gate of the city, leading directly to the dilemma of their sister, Antigone, and her ultimate demise
