Greek Tragedy: Three Plays

By Euripides and Sophocles

Paperback £8.99£7.19

Three of the most famous tragedies from Ancient Greece, all featuring female protagonists - in modern, much-performed translations.

This volume, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classic Collections series, contains:

Antigone by Sophocles, translated by Marianne McDonald. The first great 'resistance' drama, and perhaps the definitive Greek tragedy.

Bacchae by Euripides, translated by Kenneth McLeish and Frederic Raphael. The story of revenge by the half-man half-god Dionysos on Pentheus, King of Thebes, and all his people.

Medea by Euripides, translated by Kenneth McLeish and Frederic Raphael. The powerful myth of Medea, who murders her children as revenge for her husband's infidelity.
