9781331928362: The Troades of Euripides: With Revised Text and Notes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Troades of Euripides: With Revised Text and Notes

The Trojan Dames is in many respects the best of the plays of Euripides for school reading. The four plays edited by Porson are in the hands of every schoolboy, yet they were chosen for annotation by that great scholar, not because they were the best instruments to the hand of the teacher, but because they are preserved in a great number of codices, and came first in those which he chiefly used. At least three of these four plays are less fitted than most of the works of Euripides to be put into the hands of schoolboys, and none of them, I think, are so suitable for this purpose as the Troades.

This play does not derive its interest from the evolution of a plot. Perhaps one might say that in this particular condition of dramatic excellence the Troades is the weakest, while the Oedipus Tyrannus of Sophocles is the strongest, of the extant Greek plays.
