9780413716408: Euripides Plays: 5: Andromache; Herakles' Children and Herakles (Classical Dramatists) (Vol 5)

Published in the new Methuen Classical Dramatists series



Written at the height of the Peloponnesian War, the three plays in this volume highlight the trivial causes and dire consequences of war and the fate of the innocent. In Andromache, Hektor's widow struggles to survive as the concubine of her husband's killer. Herakles' Children and Herakles show his two young families, without his powerful protection at the mercy of his enemies. Full of humanity and subtle characterisation, these new translations by Robert Cannon and Kenneth McLeish which are intended both for performer and student, Euripides is reaffirmed as a fresh and compelling dramatist.

About the Author:

Euripides is the youngest and most controversial of the three surviving great tragedians from fifth century Athens. His works include Medea, the Trojan Women, the Bacchae, Iphigenia at Aulis and Hippolytus. His polemic, charged plays with their universal themes and significance remain highly relevant to today's society.
