Philoctetes by Sophocles( Book )

26 editions published between 1885 and 1960 in 4 languages and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En route to fight the Trojan War, the Greek army abandons Philoctetes after the smell of his festering wound, mysteriously received from a snakebite at a shrine on a small island off Lemnos, makes it unbearable to keep him on ship. Ten years later, an oracle makes it clear that the war cannot be won without the assistance of Philoctetes and his famous bow, inherited from Hercules himself. Philoctetes focuses on the attempt of Neoptolemus and the hero Odysseus to persuade the bowman to sail with them to Troy. First, though, they must assuage his bitterness over having been abandoned, and then win his trust. But how should they do this - through trickery, or with the truth? To what extent do the ends justify the means? To what degree should personal integrity be compromised for the sake of public duty? These are among the questions that Sophocles puts forward in this, one of his most morally complex and penetrating plays."--BOOK JACKET

"Electra recounts the murders of Clytemnestra and Aegisthus by Clytemnestra's son Orestes, to avenge their murder of his father Agamemnon, commander of the Greeks at Troy, upon his return home. Sophocles' version is presented from the viewpoint of Electra, Orestes' sister, who laments her father, bears witness to her mother's crime, and for years endures her mother's scorn. When Orestes arrives at last, her mood shifts from grief to joy as Orestes carries out the bloody vengeance. Despite her overwhelming passion for just revenge, Electra admits that her own actions are shameful."

Desolation and despair reign supreme in the kingdom of Mycenae.

Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles( Book )

13 editions published between 1885 and 1935 in 4 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life. At the center of the play is the mysterious transformation of Oedipus from an old and blind beggar, totally dependent on his daughters, to the man who rises from his seat and, without help, leads everyone to the place where he is destined to die. In the background of this transformation stands the grove of the Furies, the sacred place of the implacable goddesses who pursue the violators of blood relationships. Although Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, is an obvious target of the Furies' vengeance, he enters their grove at the beginning of the play, sure that it is the resting place Apollo has predicted for him. The reversals and paradoxes in the play speak to the struggle that Oedipus' life and the action of the play bring vividly before us: how do we as humans, subject to constant change, find stable ground on which to stand and define our moral lives? Sophocles offers his play as a witness to the remarkable human capacity to persevere in this struggle."--Jacket

Medea by Euripides( Book )

8 editions published in 1886 in Greek, Ancient and German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-scale edition in English, with introduction, text, apparatus criticus and commentary, of a play by Seneca: the last edition of any kind appeared over sixty years ago. It's purpose is primarily to elucidate Seneca's play, but also to make the edition useful to students of English and French literature by showing some of its links with the work of later playwrights. Seneca's influence on European literature is well attested, and the Medea is particularly interesting, as it was preceded by Euripides' version and followed by many plays on the subject in England, France, and Germany, derived more or less closely from Seneca's. --pubisher description
