Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Previously published as Alcestis and Other Plays , the Penguin Classics edition of Euripides Medea and Other Plays is translated by John Davie with introductions and notes by Richard Rutherford. Medea , in which a spurned woman takes revenge upon her lover by killing her children, is one of the most shocking of all the Greek tragedies. Medea is a towering figure who demonstrates Euripides unusual willingness to give voice to a woman s case. Alcestis is based on a magical myth in which Death is overcome, and the Children of Heracles examines conflict between might and right, while Hippolytus deals with self-destructive integrity. These plays show Euripides transforming awesome figures of Greek myths into recognisable, fallible human beings. John Davie s accessible prose translation is accompanied by a general introduction and individual prefaces to each play. Euripides (c.485-07 BC) was an Athenian born into a family of considerable rank. Disdaining the public duties expected of him, Euripides spent a life of quiet introspection, spending much of his life in a cave on Salamis. Late in life he voluntarily exiled himself to the court of Archelaus, King of Macedon, where he wrote The Bacchae , regarded by many as his greatest work. Euripides is thought to have written 92 plays, only 18 of which survive. If you enjoyed Medea and Other Plays , you might like Aeschylus The Oresteia , also available in Penguin Classics . One of the best prose translations of Euripides I have seen . (Robert Fagles). John Davie s translations are outstanding. The tone throughout is refreshingly modern yet dignified . (William Allan, Classical Review ). Bookseller Inventory # APG9780140449297
