Ion is generally regarded as one of Euripides' most attractive plays. A skilfully organised plot, charming characters, exciting situations and thought-provoking themes make it an excellent introduction to the study of Greek drama generally and of Euripides in particular.

From the Back Cover:

In Euripides' enchanting play, the young hero - a foundling engaged to keep the Temple of Apollo tidy - meets the Queen of Athens. The two strike up an instant rapport. She tells him of a 'friend' who was seduced by Apollo and gave birth to a child whom she abandoned... After a series of surprising and disturbing twists, mother and son are reunited and the story is resolved in a manner which foreshadows a new genre of European drama: the family romance.

About the Author:

Kevin Lee is Professor of Classics, University of Sydney, Australia. His publications include editions of Euripides Troades and Heracles.
