The Plays of Euripides

Bristol Classical, 2002 - Drama - 99 pages
0 Reviews
No book in English covering all the plays of Euripides has been published since 1967. In the meantime there has been something of a revolution in the way we view classical drama generally and Euripides in particular. "The Plays of Euripides" reflects that revolution and aims to show how Euripides was continually reinventing himself. A truly Protean figure, he seems to set out on a new journey in each of his surviving nineteen plays.
