The Trojan Women: A Play by Euripides Translated from the Greek Into English and Adapted in Response to Aristophanes' and Aristotle's Cr

The Trojan Women: A Play by Euripides Translated from the Greek Into English and Adapted in Response to Aristophanes' and Aristotle's Cr

Howard Rubenstein
3.3/5 (3 ratings)
Euripides' THE TROJAN WOMEN is considered by many to be the greatest of anti-war plays. Rubenstein, whose translation of AGAMEMNON, has been acclaimed, has now translated Euripides' masterpiece in clear American English. Aristophanes and Aristotle objected to the original prologue and choral odes on the grounds that they were irrelevant to the play. Rubenstein has written a prologue and choral odes that are relevant, in addition to being lucid. In addition, Rubenstein has added stage directions, as he did in the case of AGAMEMNON which enhances the play's readability and playability.
