9781566630221: Electra (Plays for Performance Series)

Sophocles' classic drama of a daughter's revenge of her father's murder has been translated into playable language for modern audiences. As an example of Sophoclean tragedy, with its fatalistic acceptance of human doom, Electra is unsurpassed. It is, in addition, a potent metaphor for the current disintegration of some European nations.
