Hecuba is a play of ghosts and shadowy death- The Women of Troy is a searing indictment of the aftermath of defeat- Iphigenia at Aulis shows a human tragedy at the heart of the mechanics of war- and Cyclops is a satyr play which offers a comic antidote to the tragedies.With an introduction by J.

About Euripides

Euripides is the youngest and most controversial of the three surviving great tragedians from fifth century Athens. His works include Medea, the Trojan Women, the Bacchae, Iphigenia at Aulis and Hippolytus. His polemic, charged plays with their universal themes and significance remain highly relevant to today's society.
