From the Back Cover:

In Euripides' enchanting play, the young hero - a foundling engaged to keep the Temple of Apollo tidy - meets the Queen of Athens. The two strike up an instant rapport. She tells him of a 'friend' who was seduced by Apollo and gave birth to a child whom she abandoned... After a series of surprising and disturbing twists, mother and son are reunited and the story is resolved in a manner which foreshadows a new genre of European drama: the family romance.

About the Author:

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.
