About the Book

The Greek playwright Euripedes was misunderstood in his own time, but the topics he chose to write about--women's role in society, war, religion, and the human condition--are still relevant today. This collection contains ten of his greatest works: "Alcestis," "Hippolytus," "Ion," "Electra," "Iphigenia at Aulis," "Iphigenia Among the Taurians," "Medea," "The Bachhae," "The Trojan Woman," and "The Cyclops." Translated by the distinguished poet Paul Roche, the book also contains a general introduction, short introductions to each of the plays, and a glossary of names of people, places, and gods.
