Here, in the third volume of a new edition that is receiving much praise, are four of his plays.Suppliant Women reflects on war and on the rule of law.

Euripides Electra--presenting the famous legend of a brother and sister who seek revenge on their mother for killing their father--is a portrayal interestingly different from that of Aeschylus or Sophocles. Heracles shows the malice of the gods--and mutual loyalty as the human response to divinely sent disaster.

And the theme of the tragic unpredictability of life is developed in Trojan Women. David Kovacs gives us a freshly edited Greek text and a new translation that, in the words of Greece and Rome, is close to the Greek and reads fluently and well.
