About this title


Archelaus, Andromeda, Bellerophon, Palamedes & Philoctetes These five lost plays dramatize several of the great myths that Euripides employed to explore his sense of who the gods might be (and might not be). Andromeda and Perseus escape the Sea Monster only to face her father’s decision that she marry someone other than Perseus. The exiled Archelaus fights a successful battle only to be threatened by the very king he has defended. Bellerophon, the greatest horseman in the world, tames the winged Pegasus, but flies too high for Zeus’s liking. Palamedes puts his faith in the Goddess of Luck, but finds that even she cannot promise good luck. Philoctetes possesses the bow and arrows of Heracles. Will he place these weapons at the service of Odysseus and the Greek war against Troy? Women, men, and the gods discover their meanings (and non-meanings) in these translations of ancient stories into what the author conceives to be the probing style of Euripides. About the author: The last of Coursen’s Euripidean trilogy, Lost Plays features five plays that we know Euripides wrote but that have survived only in a few papyrus fragments. Coursen has previously published Fourteen Plays by Euripides (plus one) (Mathom, 2003) and Five Plays by Euripides (Just Write Books, 2010). Two of his adaptations, The Trojan Women and Heracles have been performed by the Theater Project, Brunswick, Maine. Coursen’s recent book of poems, Blues in the Night was published by Moonpie Press. He teaches Shakespeare at Southern New Hampshire University.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
