This volume contains some of Euripides' most famous works ...

Elektra which reverses previous notions of 'heroic' behaviour

Orestes, in which almost all the characters are driven by base motives of cowardice or revenge

Iphigeneia in Tauris who presumes her brother Orestes dead and her mother Klytemnestra and stepfather Aigisthos still living, is visited by a surprise guest

Elektra, Oresetes and Iphigeneia in Tauris were performed together as Agamemnon's children at The Gate Theatre in 1995 and show the consequences of Agamemnon's "sacrifice" of his daughter at the start of the Trojan war

Edited ~ Michael J. Walton & Translated ~ Robert Cannon & Kenneth McLeish

REVIEWS

"Euripides, the Athenian playwright who dared to question the whims of wanton gods, has always been the most intriguing of the Greek tragedians. Now, with translations aimed at the stage rather than the page, his restless intellect strikes the chord I always should have. This revivification is due in part to eh translations of Kenneth McLeish, whose skill at rendering "spoken" (rather than "written") dialogue is masterly" - Evening Standard
