The Andromache and Euripidean Tragedy

William Allan

Oxford Classical Monographs

The Andromache has long been disparaged despite being a brilliant piece of theater. In this book Dr. Allan draws attention to the neglected artistry of this very impressive and intriguing text. Through careful analysis the Andromache emerges as a play that poses fundamental questions, especially about the polarity of Greek and barbarian, and the morality of the gods.
