Andromache, written in the early years of the Peloponnesian War, shows the effects of war on the conquerors and the conquered. The other main theme is the role and nature of women, explored through the conflict between the contrasting figures of Andromache and Hermione. The play has a bold and original structure, which finds room for paranoia, nymphomania, racialism, blackmail, treachery, mental breakdown, elopement and revenge. The climax is a messenger speech describing the lynching of Neoptolemus in the temple of Apollo at Delphi. Fully revised new edition.

Book Description Condition: Antiquarian. Aris & Phillips, Warminster, 1994. XXVIII,178p. Paperback. Lower corner a bit bumped. Lloyd's 'translation seems to me both accurate and helpful. L.'s commentary is very brief. (.) when he does comment, however, his comments are to the point and informative. (.) His choice of secondary reference proves to be highly judicious and gives evidence of an exemplary knowledge of recent literature. Anyone working on Greek tragedy, and in particular Euripidean tragedy, will need to consult this volume.' (DAVID BAIN in The Classical Review (New Series), 1997, p.195). Antiquarian.
