Book Description: Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can best re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals. The tragedies collected here were originally available as single volumes. This new collection retains the informative introductions and explanatory notes of the original editions, with Greek line numbers and a single combined glossary added for easy reference. This volume collects Euripides' Andromache, a play that challenges the concept of tragic character and transforms expectations of tragic structure; Hecuba, a powerful story of the unjustifiable sacrifice of Hecuba's daughter and the consequent destruction of Hecuba's character; Trojan Women, a particularly intense account of human suffering and uncertainty; and Rhesos, the story of a futile quest for knowledge.

Book Description: Collected here for the first time in the series are three major plays by Euripides: Bacchae, 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.

Book Description: This volume collects Euripides' Electra, an exciting story of vengeance that counterposes suspense and horror with comic realism; Orestes, the tragedy of a young man who kills his mother to avenge her murder of his father; Iphigenia in Tauris, a delicately written and beautifully contrived Euripidean "romance"; and Iphigeneia at Aulis, a compelling look at the devastating consequence of "man's inhumanity to man." This volume reprints the informative introductions and notes of the original editions, and adds a single combined glossary and Greek line numbers.

Book Description: Die bisherige altertumswissenschaftliche Rezeptionsforschung zu Euripides konzentrierte sich zumeist auf die Euripides-Rezeption in der griechischen Komödie oder in der römischen Tragödie. Eine eigene Beschäftigung mit der Euripides-Rezeption in Kaiserzeit und Spätantike stellt bislang ein Desiderat dar. Euripides galt in dieser Zeit als Tragiker schlechthin und war der nach Homer am häufigsten zitierte Dichter. Zumeist rezipiert über die Buchlektüre, war er Schulautor geworden und hatte insbesondere im Rhetorikunterricht der „Zweiten Sophistik“ eine herausragende Stellung. In dieser Epoche konstituierte sich auch die uns bekannte Auswahl an Stücken des Euripides. Der Band arbeitet in 20 Beiträgen die griechischsprachige Rezeption der vollständig wie auch der fragmentarisch erhaltenen Tragödien des Euripides in zentralen Autoren und literarischen Gattungen der Kaiserzeit und Spätantike heraus und diskutiert sie im kultur- und literaturhistorischen Kontext der Zeit. So leistet der Band nicht nur einen Beitrag zur Erforschung der Wirkungsgeschichte des Euripides, sondern auch zu einem allgemeinen Verständnis der literarischen Kultur der Kaiserzeit und Spätantike.

Book Description: The Grene and Lattimore edition of the Greek tragedies has been among the most widely acclaimed and successful publications of the University of Chicago Press. On the occasion of the Centennial of the University of Chicago and its Press, we take pleasure in reissuing this complete work in a handsome four-volume slipcased edition as well as in redesigned versions of the familiar paperbacks. For the Centennial Edition two of the original translations have been replaced. In the original publication David Grene translated only one of the three Theban plays, Oedipus the King. Now he has added his own translations of the remaining two, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone, thus bringing a new unity of tone and style to this group. Grene has also revised his earlier translation of Prometheus Bound and rendered some of the former prose sections in verse. These new translations replace the originals included in the paperback volumes Sophocles I (which contains all three Theban plays), Aeschylus II, Greek Tragedies, Volume I, and Greek Tragedies, Volume III, all of which are now being published in second editions. All other volumes contain the translations of the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides for the most part from the original versions first published in the 1940s and 1950s. These translations have been the choice of generations of teachers and students, selling in the past forty years over three million copies.
