Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Medea, from Greek mythology, was he daughter of King Aeetes of Colchis, Niece of Circe and the wife of Jason. Media is known in most Greek stories as an enchantress who would become the subject of of this tragedy by Euripides. The Euripides version differentiates itself from other tellings because it doesn't depict Medea is a crazy person who killed her children, but as a distressed and furious wife who is upset at Jason for leaving her to marry a princess. This is a classic tragedy by Euripides and is a popular work that was first performed in 431 BCE.

Synopsis:

This is the Medea we have been waiting for. It offers clarity without banality, eloquence without pretension, meter without doggerel, accuracy without clumsiness. No English Medea can ever be Euripides', but this is as close as anyone has come so far, and a good deal closer than I thought anyone would ever come. Arnson Svarlien has shown herself exceedingly skillful in making Euripides sound Euripidean.--David M. Schaps, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
