Complete Euripides: Bakkhai and Other Plays Volume IV

Title: The Complete Euripides: Bakkhai and Other Plays Volume IV
Edited By: Peter Burian and Alan Shapiro

Collected here for the first time in the series are three major plays by Euripides: Bakkhai, translated by Reginald Gibbons and Charles Segal, a powerful examination of the horror and beauty of Dionysiac ecstasy; Herakles, translated by Tom Sleigh and Christian Wolff, a violent dramatization of the madness and exile of one of the most celebrated mythical figures; and The Phoenician Women, translated by Peter Burian and Brian Swamm, a disturbing interpretation of the fate of the House of Laios following the tragic fall of Oedipus. These three tragedies were originally available as single volumes. This volume retains the informative introductions and explanatory notes of the original editions and adds a single combined glossary and Greek line numbers.
