Hecuba, Trojan Women, Andromache

Innbundet / 2001 / Engelsk
This is the final in a series of three volumes of a new prose translation of Euripides' most popular plays. In the three great war plays contained in this volume Euripides subjects the sufferings of Troy's survivors to a harrowing examination. The horrific brutality which both women and children undergo evokes a response of unparalleled intensity in the playwright whom Aristotle called the most tragic of the poets. Yet the new battle-ground of the aftermath of war is one in which the women of Troy evince an overwhelming greatness of spirit. We weep for the aged Hecuba in her name play and in the Trojan Women, yet we respond with an at times appalled admiration to her resilience amid unrelieved suffering. And in her name play Andromache, the slave-concubine of her husband's killer, endures her existence in the victor's country with a Stoic nobility. Of their time yet timeless, these plays insist on the victory of the female spirit amid the horrors visited on them by the gods and men during war.

The translation will be helpful for those working with a Greek text, as Morwood provides accurate line numbering, and the explanatory notes at the end of the volume will be useful for those studying the text solely in translation, as they provide a more substantial and detailed commentary than is often the case in such volumes. * Hermathena *This volume provides the reader with a strong interpretative framework to accompany the translations. * Hermathena *The translation is clear and accessible, and the introduction is informative and useful as it covers a number of topics relevant to understanding Euripides as a playwright and the historical circumstances in which he wrote. * Choice *Morwood's versions make available, in all, eleven plays in a prose style that will appeal to readers looking for solidly dependable, dignified, and helpfully annotated renderings. * Greece & Rome *
