Euripides' Escape-Tragedies

A Study of Helen, Andromeda, and Iphigenia among the Taurians

Matthew Wright

  • The first critical study of these three previously neglected plays
  • Explores the concepts of `tragedy' and `the tragic'
  • Investigates myth, cultural identity, philosophy, and religion as well as the plays' literary aspects
  • All Greek is translated or paraphrased, so the book is accessible to non-specialists
