Euripides: Iphigenia in Tauris
The story of Iphigenia, as told in the two plays of Euripides which bear her name, is so well known that it is hard to believe that it is in fact a piece of mythological syncretism which, in all probability, only received its final form at the hands of Euripides himself.
This edition, originally published in 1938 by OUP, was the pioneer in the series of Oxford commentaries on the plays of Euripides. As well as commentary, the book includes an invaluable introduction, the full Greek text and notes on metrical scheme.
