Description:


Over the past decades there has been something of a revolution in the way we view classical drama generally and Euripides in particular. This book, updated in a second edition, 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 19 plays. Between general introduction and final summary, Morwood's chapters identify the themes that underlie the plays and concentrate, above all, on demonstrating the extraordinary diversity of this great dramatist. New to this edition there is more detail on the chorus, often a complicated subject for students new to the tragic genre, and, throughout the book, further details on the individual plays and extra ideas for background reading.

The volume is a companion to The Plays of Sophocles and The Plays of Aeschylus(both by Alex Garvie) also available in second editions from Bloomsbury. A further essential guide to the themes and context of ancient Greek tragedy may be found in Laura Swift's new introductory volume,Greek Tragedy.
